Oh, this is pretty cool! Just play with these very cool toys, build something awesome and pay for college! My kids love these things!

Read the full details below:

Hatfield, PA – K’NEX Brands, one of the world’s leading construction toy
companies, is inviting kids across the country to put on their thinking caps and
enter the K’NEXpert Search – an annual contest that invites kids to design an
ultra-creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts. Three
imaginative young builders will each win a $10,000 savings bond for college.

Last year’s Grand Prize Winner, Ian Culhane, designed an amazing
6,500-Piece Dragon-Themed Roller Coaster, “Belly of the Beast.”

This year, K’NEX is expanding the contest to include three Grand Prize winners from three age groups: 5 to 6-year-olds; 7 to 8-year-olds; and, 9 to

Seven additional winners across all age groups will
each receive $1,000 savings bonds. Also, all ten winners will receive $500 worth
of free K’NEX Building Sets, a trip for three to New York City for the K’NEXpert
Award Ceremony, and their very own photo gallery page at

All semi-finalists and finalists will receive discounts on online purchases for a year, K’NEX gear, a K’NEX birthday gift, , and an invitation to visit the K’NEX headquarters and discover, through company designers, how K’NEX is made.

The 2009 K’NEXpert Search will run from now through September 30, 2008 with winners announced on or about October 28, 2008.

Children enter by printing out the entry form from the
K’NEX web site ( beginning July 8, 2008 and mailing it in to K’NEX. Submissions must include a photo of the creation and a one-minute video or one-page summary describing how the childcame up with the idea, how long the design took to build and how many K’NEX pieces were used.

Young builders between the ages of 5-12 must
submit an entry within one of four building categories:

Ultimate K’NEX Model –
built with K’NEX Bricks,

Classic K’NEX and

Micro K’NEX; Futuristic; Vehicles;

and Amusement Park Thrill Rides.

Kids are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild – models are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.

A panel of judges comprised of K’NEX employees will select
semi-finalists; an online vote will determine ten winners and Joel Glickman,
inventor of K’NEX, will choose the three Grand Prize Winners.
