Minecraft Buildathon

Enter the Go Construct Minecraft Buildathon competition to plan and build an environmentally friendly and sustainable structure with prizes to be won courtesy of Microsoft.

These challenging Minecraft competitions will allow children and their families to learn more about the sector while having fun together.

Children aged 5-12 and their families will be able to find out about the exciting variety of roles within our construction sector by designing and building a construction project through Minecraft Education, with fantastic prizes from Microsoft.

Aspire 2Be will host live webinars to support parents and carers, providing instructions on how to access Minecraft at home for free and how to participate in the competition challenge.

What is it?

To support families at this difficult time, CITB wants to give primary school pupils and their families the opportunity to engage in an exciting and interactive competition.

Using Minecraft Education Edition, families can come together as a team and use construction skills to design and build a winning structure that is unique, sustainable and environmentally friendly all the while having fun indoors.

Who is it for?

The competition is open to pupils ages 5 to 12. Families are encouraged to join in with the design phase of the competition; however pupils must do 100% of the building in the Minecraft world.


A total of 6 competitions allowing you to choose a date that works for you. Each competition is the same, with winners announced after each competition.

Let’s go!
