K'NEX Kicks Off 2011 K'NEXpert Search

Kids Can Win $10,000 Savings Bond for College!

K’NEX is inviting kids to design a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts. Three imaginative 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. The models made entirely of K’NEX pieces are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.

In addition to $10,000 for college, the 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 can meet each other and discover, through company designers and a factory tour, how K’NEX is 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

The 2011 K’NEXpert Search will run through September 10, 2010. Children can enter by printing out the entry form available at and mailing it in.

The K’NEXpert Search is open to U.S. and Canadian residents and there is no purchase necessary. For more information on K’NEX, the contest and previous winners, visit

Hi Heidi
My daughter used to love her knex. Sounds like a great competition.
Thanks for highlighing the dangers of those bulbs. We have to have those now in England too although I have not heard of any causing fires. That's so scary. We have them almost everywhere now because we just can't buy the old type. It's frustrating because they seem to take ages to actally light up fully.
