Fund Your School’s Kids to Parks Day Trip

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. Opening October 1, 2017this 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 we encourage teachers to provide support and feedback! Your entries should explain how your experience will promote education, health and wellness, and park stewardship. NPT will award park grants up to $1,000 to winning entries. We encourage schools to implement their KTP event during the month of May 2017 but exceptions can be made based on school schedules.

The deadline for entries is Thursday, February 1, 2018. Winners will be announced Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
