Kids to Parks Day National School Contest Winners Announced

National Park Trust is pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 Kids to Parks Day School Contest! The annual contest was open to all public, public charter and private schools across the U.S. in grades pre-K through 12, with priority given to students from under-resourced communities.

Each awarded school will receive a grant this spring for up to $1,000 to fund their park trip in celebration of Kids to Parks Day. And each winning proposal incorporated education, outdoor recreation, and park stewardship. This year’s proposals are outstanding! The winners include 70 schools representing 28 states and Washington, D.C. We look forward to featuring many of their park experiences on our website and in our upcoming newsletters.

A tremendous thanks to Northside, for their lead sponsorship of the Kids to Parks Day National School Contest which will fund many of these park experiences.

For more information about the contest, contact Billy Schrack, director of youth programs, at or call 301-279-7275 x20.

Congratulations to our 70 schools! Now it’s time to plan your trip and celebrate KTP Day!
