Massive puzzle competition offered in-person and virtually on Nov. 6
The 4th Annual AuSM Connections Jigsaw Puzzle Competition will be offered in both an in-person and virtual format in 2021. On Nov. 6 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., teams of puzzlers will gather at the Mall of America TCF Rotunda and on Zoom to put their skills to the test while supporting the local autism community.
Organized by the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) in partnership with PuzzleTwist and Games by James, the AuSM Connections Jigsaw Puzzle Competition offers the opportunity for teams of up to four, located anywhere in the U.S., to put their jigsaw puzzling passion to the test by competing for the fastest puzzle completion time. The event will feature two team divisions including the 500-Piece Division (9 a.m.-12 p.m.) and the 1,000-Piece Division (12:30-3:30 p.m.) in both in-person and virtual formats.
“We’re so excited to bring the AuSM Connections Jigsaw Puzzle Competition back to the Mall of America after last year’s virtual-only option due to the pandemic,” AuSM Executive Director Ellie Wilson said. “We’re going to build on the thrill of a virtual competition where folks all around the country can participate, and add back in the joy of coming together at the Mall of America to puzzle in-person and also share resources during our first ever autism resource fair held in the TCF Rotunda.”
The team registration fee is $60, and puzzles will be provided to all participants.
