End of Summer Lego Competition

We wrapped up an awesome summer with good old fashioned building with the classic... Legos! Frank Zakotnik (in the blue shirt) won first place for his design. The last photo is the Lego creation all the kids made in the summer reading program. Kids received one Lego for every 100 minutes read and built on the board. Great job guys!
