Finn Jenkins, 6, of Glen Cove was recognized on LEGO's Facebook page Monday as its "Builder of the Week" for an airplane he built with his 4-year-old brother, Dylan.
“Finn, 6 years old, in 1st grade, and built this with the help of his 4 year old little brother Dylan," wrote Finn's mother, Roni Jenkins, in her submission on April 10. "Finn is a dreamer, future engineer, future RPI graduate and hopefully, builder of the week. Thanks Lego for helping let his imagination soar.”
Jenkins said the first-grader and his younger brother are excited about the attention their creation has gotten, with dozens of comments and several hundred "likes" on the posted photo.
Dylan could not be entered because the contest is only open to children ages 6 and older, though his mother was careful to note his role in the building.
