Having put this election’s candidate challenge out to the hive mind we rejected the homicidal and the cruel and found an idea we really liked.

How about their vision of Canberra built in Lego blocks
So that’s what we’re going with. Candidates will get a big bag of lego and three hours. Then they get five minutes to showcase what they have wrought and we make a video of the whole thing.
If a candidate wants to build a dinosaur or a spaceship instead that’s their perogative.
The big problem is here in The Eagle’s Nest our cruel mothers long ago sent our treasured lego off to other homes.
Which means now it’s time for the karmic lego wheel to turn again.
So if you’ve got some lego kicking around the house which the kids have grown past (or a more understanding mother) now would be an excellent time to make a donation. At the end of the challenge we’ll find a suitable charity to donate them to AND we’ll run a credit block of all our lego donors in the write up of each challenge. Fame through lego donation!
Now if candidates are thinking they’ll need specific sorts of lego to complete their vision (looking at you pirates) we’d encourage them to donate the sets they want to work with. But bear in mind the common block set will be available to all candidates.
So if you can help be a part of history email firstname.lastname@example.org .
(Oh and if you can pass this around your networks we’d really appreciate it)
