If you have a kid with a knack for Legos, or you’re an age 6-12 Alexandrian who pays unusually close attention to local news sites: there’s a Lego competition planned today at the library in Del Ray.

The competition emphasizes teamwork, creativity, and skills with using plastic bricks to make something new.

“Attendees will be put on a team and given a prompt with 1 hour to complete their build,” the library website said. “Our esteemed judges will evaluate and choose a winning team.”

The competition runs from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at the James M. Duncan Jr. Branch Library (2501 Commonwealth Avenue).
