At the end of the project, parents will be asked to take a photo of the finished product to submit for voting immediately after the competition finishes. Once all of the photos are submitted to an email address that will be provided during the competition, voting will begin on the Century 21 Tri-Cities Facebook page.

The Lego creator who receives the most votes will receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card. The runner-up will receive a $30 Amazon Gift Card and the third place participant will receive a $20 Amazon gift card.
