I know y’all are aware of my big love for K’nex, right? Any toy that can hold my boy’s interest for more than 15 minutes has my undying love and affection.

That is why I wanted to let you in on a little something… a chance for kiddo to win a $10,000 savings bond for college in the 2011 K’NEXpert Search. Woot!

Here are the deets: K’NEX is inviting kids to design a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts. Three 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 $10,000 savings bond for college. Submissions are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.

Not only that but 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 will get an opportunity to meet each other and learn how K’NEX are made. 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 www.knex.com.  Wow, right?

The 2011 K’NEXpert Search will run through September 10, 2010. If you little on wants to enter, have them print out the entry form here http://www.knex.com/club/images/becoming/2011-KNEXpert-Search-Details-Rules.pdf and mail it in.

Good luck!
