Resident Master Model Builder, Alex, will be on hand to help the children perfect the building, which will later be finished with a final brick at the school’s grounds. Afterwards, the pupils are invited to the indoor LEGO® playground to be displayed in MINILAND®.

The winning school will also receive its logo made entirely out of LEGO®, and Kids Go Free vouchers for all pupils.

Teachers with a love for LEGO® can download a Design Sheet here. Once the school is sketched, they must take a picture or scan and post it on Facebook/ldcManchester with a name, the school name, the hashtag #MyMINILANDSchool and why you believe your school should win. 

The school landmark will sit beside iconic attractions at MINILAND®, such as Coronation Street, Blackpool Tower, Old Trafford and The Etihad Stadium.
