Win a Lego Landmark in the Stockport Summer Challenge

This summer holiday, Stockport SHAPES Alliance and One Stockport are challenging children to walk around the iconic landmarks of Stockport.

Win a Lego Landmark in the Stockport Summer Challenge

An art challenge will reward the most creative with a bespoke Lego model building of a landmark drawn by them to keep and build themselves.

Stockport Schools will issue children with a map of the route, which includes 10 key landmarks and is approximately two miles long. The challenge aims to get children active whilst learning about their local area. Children will be asked to create a picture of something that is a landmark to them in the area that they live. The winners will have their landmark transformed into a bespoke Lego model kit which will be accompanied by a YouTube video on how to build it.

Pure Innovations, a charity that supports people with disabilities and disadvantaged groups to live an independent life, have tasked their Lego team with creating the prizes. They will also judge the challenge entries and choose four winners, each representing a landmark from the North, East, South and West of the Borough of Stockport.

Councillor Jude Wells, Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health said: “We hope the children of Stockport really get involved in this exciting challenge as it fosters a whole new understanding and appreciation of the place they live. Stockport Council has partnered with a number of local organisations to create the challenge and truly unique prizes.”

As part of the challenge children will also have to do some investigating and find out facts about the landmarks. The closing date for entries is Monday 6th September and entries should be sent to dan.turner@stockport.gov.uk. A certificate will be awarded to all who participated.

To celebrate the success of the challenge, many of Stockport’s’ children will be able to enjoy the landmark Lego buildings. During the academic year 2021-2022, the model buildings will go on a schools’ tour. Schools will have the opportunity to display the models for a week and take part in cross curricular (project) work around the buildings.
