IF YOU love Lego, here's your chance to play your way to a prize.

Toddlers to teens build their imaginations with fantastic plastic in The Newcastle Permanent Great Lego Building Challenge.

The fun competition will be held over three days at the North Coast National, from October 16 to 18, with youngsters organised into separate heats.

Three to seven year olds and eight to 14 year olds will compete in groups to build the Lego structure of their dreams, all in only 20 minutes.

Since the pressure is on, expect upbeat music to keep fingers and minds moving, fast.

Organisers say the youngsters can create absolutely anything they want - and they mean anything.

Last year's competition saw spaceships, secret gardens, playgrounds, castles and robots and, this year, it's hoped the lack of rules or structure about what can be built will pave the way for even more zany creativity.

The competition, in its fourth year now, is always a popular feature of the show.

So much so that entrants are advised to book early so as not to be disappointed.
