Sophie Grahn won in the Kanabec County Fair Lego building contest.


To increase engagement and attendance during “kids’ day” at the Kanabec County Fair, fair organizers have introduced contests and games for kids of all ages. 

The Lego contest drew in over a dozen entries in each age category. The winner of the 7 – 10 year old age group was Sophie Grahn, age 10, of Mora. 

Sophie used her creativity to build the Apollo 11 spacecraft. Inspired by a recent news story about the Apollo 11 Moon Landing Anniversary Sophie decided to recreate her own rendition of the historic spacecraft.

Sophie and her family spend time at the Kanabec County Fair each year, admitting the carnival rides and delicious lemonade are two of her favorite things. Until this year she had yet to enter one of the kid’s contests. 

It is safe to say that she is already planning her creation for next year and hoping for the top prize, a beautiful blue ribbon.
