K'NEX Kicks Off 2012 K'NEXpert Search

K’NEX is inviting kids to design a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts. Three imaginative children – one from each of the three age groups: 5 to 6-year-olds; 7 to 8-year-olds; and, 9 to 12-year-olds - will each win a $20,000 savings bond for college. The winning builders will represent K’NEX as K’NEXperts during 2012, the company’s 20th anniversary year. The models made entirely of K’NEX pieces are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.

In addition to $20,000 for college (the largest award K’NEX has ever offered in this contest), the three grand prize winners will also receive a trip for three to K'NEX headquarters near Philadelphia, PA for the K’NEXpert Award Ceremony, where they can meet each other and discover, through company designers and a factory tour, how K’NEX is made. This fun video follows last year’s three grand prize winners through their day at K’NEX. Additionally, seven finalists will each receive $1,000 savings bonds and all ten winners will receive $250 worth of free K’NEX Building Sets, and their very own photo gallery page at

The 2012 K’NEXpert Search will run through September 6, 2011. Parents and children can enter at
