This sounds fun for kids who like to create with K’NEX. The K’NEXpert Search challenges young builders to design & submit a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts and are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.
The contest will have 4 grand-prize winners from four different age groups:
- 5-6 years old
- 7-8 years old
- 9-11 years old
- 12-14 years old (a new category this year)
Four imaginative children will each receive a prize package valued at $3,650.

The grand prize winners will receive $2,500, an iPad Mini™, a $250 gift card to Toys “R” Us®, and a $500 K’NEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com.
An additional eight finalists will each receive a $250 K’NEX credit code good towards a shopping spree at knex.com, a $100 Toys “R” Us gift card and a K’NEX t-shirt.
K’NEX Competition 2013
The K’NEXpert Search runs through August 23, 2013, with winners announced in October.
Children can enter using the online entry form found on the K’NEX website.
Submissions must include 3 photos of the creation, and a one-minute video or one-page summary describing how the child came up with the idea, how long the design took to build and how many K’NEX pieces were used. For more information, view the official rules here.
The K’NEXpert search is a great opportunity for your child to show off their creative skills and a fun project to do this summer!
