If you child is like main man then LEGOS are a big part of your everyday lives. When we first heard the news that LEGOLAND Discovery was going to open up at RidgeHill in Yonkers we were beyond excited and we have looking forward to opening day on March 27, 2013. LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester has Launched a search and they are Calling All Mini Model Builders in the tri-state area to join their junior construction panel. The Panel will consist of 12 youngsters (ages 6 – 12) to serve as ambassadors for the attraction throughout the year and work alongside/consult with its Master Model Builder to help finish plans for new LEGO models, provide input on what features could be added and best of all, give their seal of approval when the attraction opens March 27.

LEGOS Fun For Girls & Boys

If selected to the panel, winners will receive a special “box of imagination,” an annual pass to the attraction and work alongside LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester Master Model Builder Mike Tocidlowski, to help finish plans for new LEGO models, provide input on what features could be added and best of all, give their official approval when the attraction opens this spring. In addition, the school with the most entries for the Junior Construction Panel will also be entered for a chance to win a visit from Master Model Builder Mike Tocidlowski.

Chris Mines, General Manager of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester said,  “Children are ideal consultants for providing feedback in shaping the experience their friends will enjoy at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester.  The panel gives kids the opportunity to work with Mike, express their creativity and input and give their seal of approval on the attraction.”
