Kids to Parks National School Contest

National Kids to Parks Day is fast approaching! In addition to joining thousands of others around the country on May 17th for a day of outdoor fun, students can win a park scholarship for their school trip. The Kids to Parks Day National School contest was created to engage students with their local parks and is open to all schools across the country (grades Pre-K through 12). NPT will award scholarships up to $1,000 to winning entries to be used for their KTP park event during the month of May.

In order to participate in the contest, students must select and research a park near their school and complete and submit the two-page entry form. Only one entry form per class; more than one entry form can be submitted per school.

Students should submit their proposal in their own words. Teachers are encouraged to help them develop their ideas. Cover letters from teachers are encouraged. Accompanying artwork or videos are welcome.

Contest winners will receive funding for one park experience including school bus transportation, park related fees, and other supplies. Last year 42 scholarships were awarded.

Entries must be emailed or postmarked by February 28, 2014. Winners will be announced by March 17.
