Categories and Prizes

Each category has its own prize for the highest scoring creation. Most of the prizes are Pirates sets from the 1990’s. The sets are used and but should be in good to very good condition. See links for actual photos of used sets. Most sets have instructions but boxes are not included. All other prizes are new. We would like to thank the anonymous donors, BrickArms, and the LEGO Company for donating prizes for this contest.
