Through FIRST® LEGO® League, students around the world are introduced to the basics of robotics and engineering, using LEGO bricks to build unique solutions that teach coding, creativity, and teamwork. Now, Star Wars: Force for Change and FIRST are challenging you to reimagine LEGO bricks into Star Wars holiday-inspired builds.
In celebration of the release of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+, fans ages 13 and up are invited to turn LEGO bricks into Star Wars holiday-inspired builds. Share a photo of your LEGO Star Wars holiday designs on Instagram or Twitter with #LEGOStarWarsHolidayContest and one grand prize winner will be selected to receive the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (#75192) set and a FIRST LEGO League team or classroom registration.

A panel of judges for the contest will include Star Wars Actress Kelly Marie Tran, LEGO Star Wars design director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, and FIRST LEGO League alumni Sanjay and Arvind Seshan.
Virtual LEGO Star Wars holiday designs can also be submitted for entry using LEGO Digital Designer or LEGO BrickLink Studio.
