Winners announced!

EcoKids and Sony Canada invited schools to participate in our EarthPLAY for Earth Day Play event. We are pleased to announce that many schools across Canada registered and enjoyed a full day of play outside for the day!

We received photos and videos from schools across Canada and identified ten winners through random draw!

We are delighted to see all of the students outside engaging in self-directed play with loose parts and taking an extended recess to enjoy and appreciate nature.

Congratulations to our grand prize winner of a custom EarthPLAY Play Fest from the EarthPLAY team at Earth Day Canada and a Sony ActionCam

Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary School, Waterloo, Ontario

Winner_holy_rosary_catholic_elementary_schoolThe custom EarthPLAY Fest came at a good time for the Holy Rosary Catholic School community. They have been preparing to integrate students from a local school that will be closing it’s doors next fall. The EarthPLAY Fest was a great opportunity to give the new students a fun welcome into the school community. See article here.
