HARRINGTON, Del. - Elsewhere at the Delaware State Fair you've got people participating in everything from baking contests, to ice skating showcases. But on Saturday, WMDT's Jarred Hill got to witness a fierce competition, where skilled artisans crafted architectural masterpieces, with probably, one of the most essential building blocks of life, LEGOS!

Houses, rockets, and everything in between.

"It's a sheep pasture."

It's amazing what these kids can do with just 1 hour, and a bucket of random plastic blocks.

Amy Jones, of the Fair Board of Directors, says "They use their creativity and their imagination to build whatever they come up with."

Some deciding to stick with the fair's theme, "celebrate what's great."

"I'm making what's great in my life and that's my family" says Lego Builder Brooke Dodd.

These master builders, ranging in age from 5 to 17, aren't new to the scene.

Jarred Hill says to competitor Ryan "so, you're a pro?" Ryan replies "yeah!"

Athletes had to register for this filled-to-capacity competition more than a month in advance. Giving them enough time to find their game face.

Andrew Smith, Lego Builder, says "I've just been thinking of ideas, drawing down plans for building things."

The competition actually gathered a pretty decent crowd. With spectators of all ages and species.

Hill to a llama "so tell me, who do you think is going to win this competition?... That's a good choice, good choice...  I agree...  The lama's smart."

But regardless of who builds their way to the top, like almost everything else at the fair, "it's just for fun." says Dobb.

Winners were announced since it was a competition, but all of the pieces will be on display in the Dover building for the rest of the week. So, be sure to check them out.
