Calling all LEGO architects

DeKALB — Ellwood House is requesting all LEGO fans, age 6 and older, to submit a LEGO building inspired by a structure in DeKalb County. The buildings will be on exhibit from April 6 through 18. Entries can be creative, but they must be a building.

Entry forms can be downloaded at the Ellwood House website or picked up in the Visitor Center. The cost to enter a LEGO project for the exhibit is $5. Age categories are: 5-8, 9-12, and 13 and older. Prizes will be awarded in each category. Entry form and fee must be submitted by April 5, with the LEGO buildings delivered to the museum between April 3 and April 5.

This Ellwood Explorers event is partially funded by the Cy Miller Foundation. For more information, contact Rebecca Nickels at 815-756-4609 or email at

The Ellwood House is at 509 N. First St. in DeKalb.
