Winner Announcement

The winners have been chosen! Thank you for participating in this contest. We've been blown away by all the amazing entries! 

This contest is now closed. Thank you for participating.

If you could include your very own, customized floor in a LEGO Tower, how would it look? We challenge you to build a virtual LEGO floor that fits within the brand-new LEGO Tower game. Make sure you build an awesome place to hang out, because your design could end up in the actual LEGO Tower game launching this summer.

So, open your digital LEGO building tool and unleash your creativity to get your very own floor included in the LEGO Tower game!

 

 

Six winners will get their winning room integrated into the LEGO Tower game launching this summer. On top of that, each winner will get the LEGO Creator Expert 10264 Corner Garage, the LEGO Ideas 21313 Ship in a Bottle, a $200 shopping spree on shop.LEGO.com and a very special unlock feature in the new LEGO Tower game.
