LEGOLAND® DISCOVERY CENTER PHILADELPHIA SEEKING LOCAL CHILDREN TO BE A PART OF THEIR “CREATIVE CREW”
LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Philadelphia is seeking young LEGO fans from the local community to apply to join their “Creative Crew,” a group of children aged 6-12 who will participate in fun activities, special events, and assist the attraction’s Master Model Builder. Once construction is complete this spring, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia will be a 33,000-square-foot indoor LEGO playground offering 2-3 hours of family fun and imaginative learning complete with a 4D Cinema and LEGO-themed ride.
What is Creative Crew?
Children in the Creative Crew will serve as special ambassadors leading up to the attraction’s grand opening and beyond, building and testing new models for events, reporting on what’s new and sharing top tips on everything LEGO—from the best seat in the LEGO® 4D Cinema to how to get the highest score on the attraction’s LEGO-themed ride, Creative Express.
“This special team of LEGO fans from the community will be integral in ensuring our attraction is up to the standard of our most important critics, the children,” said Mike Taylor, General Manager for LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia.
How do you apply?
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Philadelphia is hosting a contest from Wednesday, January 11 through Sunday, February 5 to find a group of imaginative and enthusiastic children to fill the 12 spots in their Creative Crew. Interested children must show off an original LEGO model and answer the question, “Why should you be in the Creative Crew?” in a 30-second video posted to Facebook or Twitter with #PhillyCreativeCrew.
Submissions will be evaluated based on the creativity and enthusiasm in the child’s response, imagination conveyed in the child’s LEGO model, as well as likes and retweets received on the video. The winners will be announced shortly after the contest’s close on February 5, 2017. Official rules can be viewed here.
