Last month, Disney released the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+, which sees Rey set off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force, which results in them travelling through time and seeing some of the most beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history.
This holiday season, as part of the Star Wars: Force For Change initiative, Disney, Lucasfilm, and the LEGO Group are teaming up with the global robotics community FIRST to bring fans an exciting challenge.
Through FIRST LEGO League, students around the world are introduced to the basics of robotics and engineering, using LEGO bricks to build unique solutions that teach coding, creativity, and teamwork. Now, Star Wars: Force for Change and FIRST are challenging you to reimagine LEGO bricks into Star Wars holiday-inspired builds.
In celebration of the release of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+, they want to see how you, fans ages 13 and up, can use your LEGO bricks to create Star Wars holiday-inspired builds. Share a photo of your LEGO Star Wars holiday designs on Instagram or Twitter with #LEGOStarWarsHolidayContest and one grand prize winner will be selected to receive the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (#75192) set and a FIRST LEGO League team or classroom registration. Four runners-up will be selected to receive LEGO Star Wars The Child (#75318), LEGO Star Wars Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter (#75273), LEGO Star Wars Sith TIE Fighter (#75272), LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (#75288), and LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (#75292).
A panel of judges for the contest will include Star Wars Actress Kelly Marie Tran, LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, and FIRST LEGO League alumni Sanjay and Arvind Seshan.
Virtual LEGO Star Wars holiday designs can also be submitted for entry using LEGO Digital Designer or LEGO BrickLink Studio.
The contest launches December 9, 2020 at 7 am PT, and contestants must share their holiday-inspired LEGO Star Wars builds on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #LEGOStarWarsHolidayContest by December 23, 2020 at 11:59 pm PT.
