Calling all movies makers: LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Chicago is launching its first-ever LEGO Legends of Chima video contest for children ages six to 12. Applicants are invited to create a short LEGO-themed video (one to three minutes long) that tells a story or showcases their LEGO bricks in a fun and unique way! Entries will be accepted beginning April 10 through the end of the contest on May 17th.
Five finalists will be chosen by a special panel of LEGOLAND Discovery Center judges. On May 24, the finalists and their families will be invited to an exclusive red carpet premiere of the Center’s new LEGO Legends of Chima 4D movie – a heroic tale of eight animal tribes fighting for control of a powerful and mystical element called CHI.
One Grand prize winner will be announced at the premiere, and the winning video will be shown on the big screen in front of a live theatre audience. The Grand Prize winner will take home a family four-pack of Annual Passes to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago plus tickets to LEGOLAND Florida (airfare not included). The four runners-up will each receive a family 4-pack of Annual Passes to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago.
To enter the contest, applicants need to complete the online entry form on LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago’s Facebook page and include a hyperlink to their video. Children must have permission from their parent or guardian.
The LEGO Legends of Chima 4D movie opens to the public Memorial Day Weekend, May 25 – 27, with three days of fun-filled Chima activities including:
Hunt for hidden CHI in the wilds of the Jungle Expedition;
Witness the epic battle for CHI as the animal warriors face off in MINILAND;
Build your own animal warrior to help bring peace to the land; and
Win prizes and giveaways, while supplies last.
