National Park Trust (NPT) invites students across the country to participate in the 8th annual Kids to Parks Day, a nationwide grassroots movement to celebrate America’s Parks and public lands.
In honor of this day, NPT is once again hosting the Kids to Parks Day National School Contest to help educators engage their students with their local parks. This national contest is open to all Title I schools in the United States (grades pre-K through 12). Classes can receive funding for a KTP event at a park or public land/waterway in their community. Students must research and write the proposal themselves, although teachers are encouraged to provide support and feedback! Student's entries should explain how their experience will promote education, health and wellness, and park stewardship. NPT will award park grants up to $1,000 to winning entries.
The deadline for entries is Thursday, February 1, 2018. Winners will be announced Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
