Hatfield,PA (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
K'NEX, the only US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids LoveÂ®, is excited to announce its 15th annual KâNEXpert Search, launching May 21, 2014! The nationwide KâNEXpert Search challenges young builders to design and submit a creative, original model made entirely from KâNEXÂ® parts that will be judged on criteria such as originality, creativity, and complexity of the model, given the age category.
The contest will have 4 Grand Prize Winners, one from each of the four different age group categories. Age groups include: 5-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-11 years old; and 12-14 years old. The four imaginative Grand Prize Winners will each receive a prize package valued at approximately $ 2,000 (US).
This year, Grand Prize Winners will receive the coolest KâNEXpert prize package yet, which includes, among other things: $ 1,000, an iPad Miniâ¢, and a $ 500 KâNEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com. An additional eight Finalists will each receive, among other things, a $ 100 K'NEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com, and a KâNEX t-shirt.
The KâNEXpert Search runs through August 29, 2014, with winners announced in October. Children can enter using the online entry form found on the KâNEX website, http://www.knexperts.com. Submissions must include up to 3 photos of the creation, and a short video or one-page summary describing how the child came up with the idea, how long the design took to build, and how many KâNEX pieces were used. For more information, view the Official Rules here: http://bit.ly/knexpertrules.
A panel of judges comprised of KâNEX employees will select the Semi-Finalists from each age category; an online vote taking place October 13-20, 2014 will determine the Annual KâNEXpert winners, and Joe Smith, Chief Development Officer at KâNEX, will then select the four Grand Prize Winners.
The KâNEXpert Search is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada, except those of Puerto Rico, U.S. territories or possessions, the Province of Quebec, and where prohibited, and no purchase is necessary.
