  1. Hey there!

    My name is Alex Sharp and I am a casting associate producer for FOX’s hit show, LEGO Masters. I am reaching out because we are currently casting for a very special edition of LEGO Masters – the JUNIOR edition! We’re on the search for the most passionate, talented and awesome kid LEGO builders in the country who are between the ages of 9 to 17 and are ready to compete to become the first ever LEGO MASTER JUNIOR!

    If there is anyone within your program that you feel might be a good fit, I would love to schedule a call with their legal guardian to tell them more about the show.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy to hop on a call and tell you more!

    1. Hi Alex,
      This sounds like such a fun opportunity! Since we’re providing resources and ideas for teachers, we don’t know of students who are great with LEGOs. Best of luck on your search!
