2013 Colonial Elementary 5th Grade Lego Build-Off

In June of 2013, Blake Construction sponsored and monitored the three day Lego Build-off at Colonial Elementary in Blue Ridge, VA. The fifth grade students were divided into 23 teams of three to four students. Each team was given a set of 650 Legos, and alternate building materials of construction paper, aluminum foil and string.

Day One: Selecting a building type, drawing a plan and selecting alternate building materials.

Day Two: Let the building begin!

Day Three: The teams finished their structures and added the finishing touches. They then gave a presentation to all 5th graders, describing their projects and the process they followed to complete them. Winners were chosen by students and school staff.

"Again this year I was personally amazed at the hard work and dedication each team displayed. Colonial Elementary School teaches every day the principles of Covey's Seven Habits, and that teaching was very evident in each of these students. Blake Construction and Colonial Elementary have agreed to make this an annual event." Brian Blake
