I have been asked again to judge the LEGO and K’Nex category at the 2006 NC State Fair. Judging takes place tomorrow and should be harder than last year because 3 of my children have entered this year! I have told them I must be objective but somehow I feel that I am going to have to deal with some hurt feelings.
Last year when Joe Meno and I did this, we made a suggestion that the Fair drop the “kit” category as judging someone’s ability to follow directions doesn’t make a lot of sense. We also suggested they add a category for North Carolina themed models with suggestions for lighthouses and other well known landmarks. The Fair added the NC category but didn’t eliminate the kit category. This should be interesting to say the least!
