Our Kids to Parks Day National School Contest is officially open!
I know what you’re thinking: it’s only January and summer seems so far away. Well, wouldn’t it be amazing if you and your classmates had a fun park trip to look forward to this spring? Kids to Parks Day is May 16th and students and teachers across the country have the opportunity to apply for our Kids to Parks Day National School Contest through Monday, March 2nd. The contest is open to all schools across the country grades preK through 12 and students can win park scholarships up to $1,000. Click here for application details. Priority will be given to schools from under-served communities.
Last year, 43 schools were awarded scholarships. Read what Marcie Adame, a health and PE instructor at the Kimberlin Academy of Excellence in Garland, TX, had to say last year about their scholarship:
“We are very appreciative of the connections that we created between our students and their environment, their park, and their community. Thank you for helping us inspire a new generation to appreciate and be stewards of the world around them, but especially, the ones in their own backyard.”
