Play Everywhere Challenge Powered by Skild’s Contest Platform Shares Gallery of Finalists
Kids and play… they go together like peanut butter and jelly. In fact, studies show that play is critical to the health and well-being of children. But far too many kids in the U.S. aren’t getting the play they need. This is especially true in low-income neighborhoods. To counter this trend, the nationwide Play Everywhere Challenge, powered by the Skild contest platform, seeks to find great innovations in city redevelopment that make play fun and accessible for kids and families.
Collaborating on More Ways to Play
The challenge was developed by a group including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Target, Playworld, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the National Endowment for the Arts. It will provide $1 million in prizes to 50 winners across the country to help them turn their community-focused concepts into reality.
