Inspire Your Students To Dream Big

The Community Builders Challenge, has ended for this school year.  We want to congratulate the 2nd Grade Classes at Ehrman Crest Elementary School in Cranberry Township, PA for winning this year's Challenge.

We loved seeing all the creativity and compassion students across the country to build a better world.

The Challenge

How we play can shape the world, and we need teachers like you to lead the fun. 

Empower your students to use their creativity skills to build awesome new communities that support everybody and have a positive impact.

The Community Builder’s Challenge, created by Red Nose Day In School and the LEGO Group's Build The Change team, was designed to help your students imagine solutions for everyday problems they see around them: Are there ways to make it easier for everyone to play together? What if you could change how to share food? How about a new green space for a neighborhood with no grass or trees?

Help them see the world they want to live in, and then bring their vision to life.

Get started

Let the Building Begin!

When your students are free to explore and learn through play, there are so many imaginative possibilities to build brighter communities.

Use any creative materials —no LEGO® bricks required!



Watch the instructional video with your class and start dreaming. Plan what your community might need — check out the Inspiration Sheet in the free activity packet to get ideas flowing. 


Encourage your students to design and create their awesome ideas using any classroom supplies that spark their creativity, from paper, glue, crayons, and clay to LEGO® bricks, feathers, popsicle sticks.


Bring all your builds together into an inspiring community. Name and describe your amazing creations. Just remember that every build needs to find a spot for a Red Nose at its heart to ensure positivity and inclusion for all.

Let's Go!
