You can submit an entry made out of actual LEGO parts, or a digital entry, however your font must use one of the five new tile parts.
The three winners of this contest will each receive a prize of 50 of each of these new types of tiles, which is 250 tiles total! The contest ends May 31st. Make sure that you go and check out the contest on the New Elementary website, where you can read the full rules, as well as submit your entries.

If you were to imagine starfighters as they could realistically exist 200 years from now, what would they look like and how would they navigate with virtually no air resistance? This starfighter contest allows you to explore just that while competing with other imaginative inventors. The starfighters must be able to fit a LEGO minifigure and it must be feasible given the time period (oxygen, power, maneuverability, etc).
The deadline is May 15th, and you can find the full rules in the Starfighter Filckr group.
There are some amazing prizes to be won including the UCS Tie Fighter.
