Joel Anders of Charlestown won second place in the 7th-grade class at the 7th annual LEGO Contest on March 17 in Chester, Vt., with his entry titled “S.W.A.T. Team.”

Thirty exhibitors in grades pre-k through 7th grade and their siblings, parents, grandparents, and friends came from 11 towns in Vermont and two in New Hampshire.

Entry themes ranged from a boathouse, treehouse, skating rink, ski resort, fair, amusement park, pet village, haunted house, fire station, battle stations, and warriors to a 6-foot-4-inch clock tower.

Individual, team, and family entries were judged by grade for originality, imagination, and presentation.

The event is sponsored by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
