"MEET ME AT THE PARK" --- EARTH MONTH CAMPAIGNName: "MEET ME AT THE PARK" --- EARTH MONTH CAMPAIGNDate: April 4, 2018 - April 30, 2018Event Description:
Nominate the Town of Vienna to Receive a $20,000 Grant for Earth Month through the National Recreation and Park Association’s “Meet Me At The Park” Earth Month Campaign.
Local parks make a better place to live and shape so many of our lives. Parks are essential to our city’s health and wellbeing. They provide safe places to be active and enjoy nature—and they help preserve the environment and bring people together.
The locale that receives the most nominations at the end of April will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park. Nominations end April 30, 2018 at 11:59 ET. Visit www.meetmeatthepark.org to nominate the Town of Vienna. Everyone that submits a nomination will be entered into a drawing for a GroPro Prize Pack.
Meet Me At The Park is a collaboration between the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Walt Disney Company to bring the magic of parks and recreation to children and families across the United States. To celebrate Earth Month and the importance of local parks , NRPA, in collaboration with Disney, ESPN and ABC engages the public through a voting campaign to provide communities with resources to support projects that connect kids to nature, inspire healthy living and increase kids access to sports.
“In our hectic, overscheduled world, we sometimes forget the enormous benefits that unstructured play and playgrounds offer our children. This grant will allow the Town of Vienna to provide additional playground equipment that helps children develop large motor skills, stimulates cognitive skills, increases fitness, enhances social skills, and fires children’s imaginations. Mostly though, playgrounds offer children a chance to have fun and be happy.” Leslie Herman, Director of Parks and Recreation.
