Win $25,000 for a Madison Playground

Parents magazine, KaBOOM! and Foresters life insurance company are offering communities a chance to win a $25,000 playground upgrade. Let’s help a Madison playspace win!

Your favorite park or playground could win an innovative Imagination Playground in a Box. Earn points for your playground by taking simple actions like uploading photos. The more points, the better your playground’s chance to win!

There’s a lot of info up on the contest FAQ page, but here’s the shortened version of how to enter:

1. Go to the Parents Magazine website to find your favorite local playground, park, or community space (or add it to the list if it’s not already there).

2. Become a fan of that playspace. Clicking on the “become a fan” button automatically nominates the playspace for the contest. You can only nominate a playspace once, but you can nominate as many playspaces as you would like!

3. Help that playspace earn points (you can earn points for as many playspace as you want). Adding a photo, adding a video, and adding a comment will add to the point total of the playspace.

The top 50 playspace with the most points will be narrowed down to 10 semifinalists by the judges. Three winners will be selected by public vote on the Parents magazine website.

Both James Madison Park and the Henry Vilas Zoo Playground have already been nominated. Know of any other playspaces in Madison in need of an upgrade?
