The Mini Home Builder Challenge, is an opportunity for children to build or design their dream home, using building or art and craft materials to demonstrate how easy and fun designing your dream home can be.
Andrew Reardon, Senior Selfbuild Account Handler at Doncaster based ProAktive Selfbuild, the team behind the competition said: “We are really looking forward to seeing the designs that young people from across the country come up with. The only constraints are their own imagination.
“We know that we’ll get houses made from building bricks, and computer game generated designs, and that is great, we can’t wait to see the different ways in which children go about meeting this challenge.
“Schools from across the county are being invited to get on board and use this challenge as part of their art, design and creative sessions with their pupils.
“We’ve set the idea and the challenge is now being handed over to our mini home builders!”
There are three age categories for the competition, under 5s, 6 – 8 year olds and 9-11 year olds.
Entrants will need to upload their videos or images of their design, building process, or the completed build, to the Mini Home Builder Challenge portal: www.selfbuildonline.co.uk.
“We’ll be offering prizes for the most imaginative and creative mini self builds. As part of the judging process, the entries with the most likes, shares, favourites and retweets will help form the final shortlist of entries, to be judged by an expert panel. Family and friends are encouraged to get involved on social media, good luck to all entrants,” added XX.
The overall competition winner will receive a family getaway (for a family of 4) to a family attraction of their choice, (to the value of £500)
The competition closes on Friday December 23rd 2016 and the winners will be announced on January 31st 2017.
