What Does Bob the Builder Want to Be When He Grows Up?

That's easy! A K'NEXpert!

Seriously! The 2008 K'NEXpert Search is a contest for builders aged 5 to 12. The idea is to build an original, creative model made entirely from K'NEX. Sounds like a lot of FUN to me! The finished products are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail, and must fit into one of the following four categories:

A. Futuristic - (Think Space ships, Robots, etc! Use your imagination!)
B. Vehicles - (Cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. If it goes, it will 'fly'!)
C. Amusement Park Thrill Rides (Sounds self explanatory to me:)
D. Ultimate K'NEX Model - Build anything you want with K'NEX Bricks, Standard K'NEX AND Micro K'NEX parts (Must include all 3 types of parts).

That's it! So get those creative juices flowing in those kids of yours (it'll keep them occupied for DAYS!) and let them apply.

WIIFY? (What's in it for you? ...hehehe... made that one up)

Does a $10,000 Savings Bond sound good? That is the Grand Prize! They also have other prizes up for grabs for those creative daredevils who can prove their K'NEXpertise. These include nine $1,000 savings bonds, K'NEX building sets and an invitation to visit K'NEX headquarters. All winners will also receive discounts off K'NEX gear and their own gallery page at, which will be updated throughout the year with pictures of the winner's designs and creations.

The 2008 K'NEXpert Search runs from July 2, 2007 to September 28, 2007 so there is STILL TIME!!!. To get more info and to enter the contest, head over to the K'NEXpert Search official site!
