AuSM Connections Jigsaw Puzzle Competition

Puzzling, Community Building, and Autism Resources
Held Virtually Oct. 24, 2020

AuSM is teaming up with PuzzleTwist to offer the 3rd Annual AuSM Connections Jigsaw Puzzle Competition virtually this year! Whether you are a serious puzzle-building competitor or just want to have fun building a neat puzzle with friends and family while supporting the local autism community, we invite you to join us from the comfort and safety of your own space.

Using the Zoom virtual platform, teams of up to four people will compete in the 500-Piece and 1,000-Piece competition divisions. All ages and abilities are welcome to puzzle with us! In addition to keeping your competition puzzle, teams will receive a Rules and Resources guide filled with information on businesses and organizations that support the Minnesota autism community.

Competition puzzles and Rules and Resources guides will be mailed to teams prior to the Oct. 24 contest date; registration cost includes shipping. You don’t have to live in Minnesota to participate – we’ll ship to anywhere in the U.S.! Puzzle Zoom Rooms will include 15-20 team windows, where you will view a Zoom Room welcome message, a rules video, and then put your puzzling skills to the test during the timed competitions.

Register early! In order to ensure your puzzle is shipped to you prior to the competition date, please register your puzzle team by Oct. 9. Teams that register after Oct. 9 will have to pick up their puzzle from AuSM’s office in St. Paul on Oct. 11 between 8-11 a.m. and 4-7 p.m.
