CREATIVITY FLOURISHED at the LEGO Exhibition held at the Miller Elementary School January 29. Elementary students were encouraged to show their creations, and the gym was full of students and guests.

Elementary students got busy building a wide variety of LEGO creations that were displayed January 29 in the elementary gym, for the third annual LEGO Exhibition.

Elementary principal Tammy Caffee says LEGOS were on many students’ Christmas wish list, in anticipation of the upcoming exhibition.

Well over 200 spectators signed in to see the many different and unique LEGO projects on display.

Prizes were awarded for Best of Show, and runners-up, as follows:

K-1 Best of Show – Heather Resel; runner-up – Tanner Wallman.

Grades 2-3 Best of Show – Cole McKinstry; runner-up – Sara Jessen.

Grades 4-5-6 Best of Show – Garrett Neyens; runner up – Nathan Watts.

Partner category Best of Show – Payton Coyle and Logan Peterson; runners up – Zach Namanny and Tucker Duxbury.

A large jar held “many” LEGOS, and everyone was invited to guess how many. Student Kacie Tyrrell had the closest guess, at 375. Teacher Jennifer Gibson was runner up with a guess of 333. The actual number was 358.

The colorful plastic bricks and accompanying minifigures and various other parts helped brighten a cold, drab January day.
