build-a-thon winners 2019

 The 2019 Build-A-Thon entries demonstrated the power of play! Whether using the Blue Blocks in person, or tinkering with the 3D Builder App, our builders showcased their skills in critical thinking and creativity.

Children ages 2-10 could build with the physical Big Blue Blocks at area schools and family centers, or digitally with the Imagination Playground 3D Builder app. The Build-A-Thon contest asked builders to show us their best builds (parents and educators sent in photos of the builds), for a chance to win BIG prizes!
