National Park Trust is inviting students across the country to participate in the 7th annual Kids to Parks Day, a nationwide grassroots movement to celebrate America’s parks and public lands, a “day of play!”
In honor of the day, the group is once again hosting the Kids to Parks Day (KTP) National School Contest to help educators engage their students with their local parks. This national contest is open to all Title I schools and school groups in the United States (grades preK through 12). Students can submit proposals to fund a KTP event at a park or public lands/waterways in their community. The program will award park scholarships up to $1,000 to winning entries. Scholarships can be used by the winners to implement their KTP event this spring. Deadline for entries is Tuesday, February 14th. Winners will be announced Wednesday, March 1st, 2017.
