Well done and thank you to all the kids who took part!

When level 4 lockdown was enforced on 26 March, we knew there were going to be more than a few households with restless kids (and adults) who now had a lot of time on their hands but still needed a way to engage with their favourite subject matter – trucks! – from the confines of their homes. And so the New Zealand Trucking April 2020 Lego Lockdown competition was born! The rules were simple: entrants had to be younger than 14 (a little help from parents or older siblings was allowed), the models needed to be built during the lockdown period, and creativity, imagination and enthusiasm were to reign supreme. We received more than 30 entries (some multiple) over the three weeks we ran the competition.

We were blown away by the entries received and picking winners wasn‘t easy. Luke Dodd (8) from Napier, Max Dennison (12) from Te Awamutu, and Cooper McDowall (8) from Winton were our top three.
