Project EverGreen’s Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.TM initiative was created to revitalize athletic fields, recreational grounds and surrounding green spaces across the country in underserved areas that can benefit most from an improved green space.
Why? Renovated fields and play grounds will not only benefit kids/students who play there, but also create a natural gathering spot for parents, community officials and business leaders to network and work together to further sustain their community’s environment.
Municipal parks and recreation departments, public works departments and non-profit agencies can enter the contest to have a chance at winning a top-of-the-line Exmark commercial mower package including Lazer Z X-Series zero-turn and Commercial 30 walk-behind mowers – valued at approximately $15,000 – as well as a “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.”™ renovation project for their city.
The essay should be 250 words or less and describe what the park or green space means to your community. Include who uses the field and for what purposes. Or, if the park has fallen into disarray and is unusable, describe what a park renovation would mean to kids and families in the area.
