Teachers, this is an incredible grant opportunity to get your kids in parks to learn and act as stewards for our public lands!!
TELL ME MORE!! HOW DO I ENTER?!?!
It’s so simple that your students can do it for you…in fact, they have to. Okay, it is suggested that you help them out a little.
Step 1: Go to http://www.parktrust.org
Step 2: Click on the “Kids to Parks Day” link, then “School Contest”
Step 3: They’ll tell you the rest. Essentially, have your kids plan out a day at the park site and then write a proposal to the powers that be explaining why they want to visit the park, how they will act as park stewards during the trip, and how they will partake in healthy living while there. Throw in some pictures or an awesome video to further plead your case.
Step 4: Think happy thoughts and hopefully receive word that your class is heading to the parks. Your class receives trip funding as well as Kids to Parks patches, Kids to Park stickers, AND your very own Buddy Bison to take on the trip!
