Imagination Playground, LLC – creators of the breakthrough Big Blue Blocks that encourage child-directed free play, announces its next contest, Build-A-Thon 3! The contest will run May 18, 2017 through December 31, 2017 to allow children plenty of opportunity to build and submit their creations.

Build-A-Thon 3 is a contest that allows children ages 2-10 to create using either Big Blue Blocks at any of Imagination Playground sponsor locations (schools, local family centers, children’s museums, discovery centers and science centers) or using Imagination Playground’s 3D Builder app. The app is available for android and apple phones, or browser version on the company’s website. With two ways to play, children can submit photos of their physical builds or screen shots of their digital builds. There is no limit on the number of builds a child can submit. Everyone is encouraged to enter multiple times to increase their chances of winning.

There are 3 prize levels with even more ways to win! The first 1000 entries are guaranteed a prize, so entrants are encouraged to enter early. Builders can win for themselves or support their favorite organization (school, church, daycare, or community center) by nominating them to receive the playground.

The prizes offered include:

Grand Prize: A trip to the Imagination Playground Park in New York City and a 105-Piece Big Block Set awarded to the best build

1st Place: A 105-Piece Big Block Set awarded to physical and digital builds

2nd Place: A 55-Piece Big Block Set awarded to physical and digital builds

3rd Place: Mini Pop-Out Playgrounds for the first 1000 entries
