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!
