2017: A Record-Breaking Kids to Parks Day
2017 was a record-breaking year for National Park Trust’s Kids to Parks (KTP) Day! More than 1-million people participated in over 1,700 Kids to Parks Day events coast to coast – Alaska and Hawaii, too! Plus 3,764 students from 70 schools representing 28 states and Washington, D.C. benefited from NPT’s Kids to Parks Day National School Contest.
Watch this short Kids to Parks Day summary video featuring many of the students, most from Title 1 schools, who received park grants this past school year. Each winning proposal–written by the students!–incorporated education, outdoor recreation, and park stewardship. A sincere thanks to our lead sponsor, Northside! Their support of KTP Day 2017 funded many of these park experiences.
Do you know of a Title I school that would benefit from a park grant? Then let them know that our next school contest will open in October 2017 and will be featured in an upcoming issue of NPT News.
Save the date, KTP Day 2018 is May 19th! (Always the third Saturday in May.)
