Children invited to design and build their own dream home

Children from across the country are being invited to build or design their dream home for a competition which will challenge the creative ability of the under 11s across the nation.

The ‘Mini Home Builder Challenge’, is an opportunity for children to build or design their dream home, using building or art and craft materials to demonstrate how easy and fun designing a dream home can be.

Andrew Reardon, Senior Selfbuild Account Handler at ProAktive Selfbuild, the team behind the competition said: “We are really looking forward to seeing the designs that young people from across the country come up with. The only constraints are their own imagination.

“We know that we’ll get houses made from building bricks, and computer game generated designs, and that is great, we can’t wait to see the different ways in which children go about meeting this challenge.

Schools from across the county are being invited to get on board and use this challenge as part of their art, design and creative sessions with their pupils.

There are three age categories for the competition, under 5s, 6 – 8 year olds and 9-11 year olds. Entrants will need to upload their videos or images of their design, building process, or the completed build, to the Mini Home Builder Challenge portal: www.selfbuildonline.co.uk.

The overall competition winner will receive a family getaway (for a family of 4) to a family attraction of their choice, (to the value of £500). The competition closes on Friday December 23rd 2016 and the winners will be announced on January 31st 2017.
