The Ohio History Connection is asking central Ohioans to flex their creative muscles for the 2016 LEGO Design Challenge.

The competition honors the golden anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. Entrants are asked to create a structure from 50 years ago or imagine one 50 years in the future. The contest is open to all ages and experience levels in the categories of youth, group/family and adult. The deadline is Sept. 26.

The competition is being conducted in partnership with the Ohio History Connection, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Ohio Statehouse and the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington.

Finalists' work will be shown in a special exhibit called 50 Years Past, 50 Years Future, which will be on rotating display from November through March at the four partner sites.
