In 2005 I entered the Junior Master Model Builder Competition in LEGOLAND California. I won the semi-finals in the month of May for the theme of “Mother’s Day,” with my Mother’s Day Cake featured below. I was invited back to compete in the Ultimate Build Off later that year in December, for the theme of LEGOLAND. At the competition, I modeled the ride Skipper School, featured above, a creation that impressed the judges enough to name me the winner.
As part of my prize for winning, I had the amazing experience of spending the entire day with a Master Model Builder in the Model Shop, something of a childhood dream come true.
I was also immortalized in plastic brick form in LEGOLAND’s MiniLand, seen below.
