Something to Get Involved In!

I have been busy working on another project for the past month, and I thought that some of you might be interested in it as well. Here is what I blatantly plagiarized from my coworker’s press release about our new program:

g2Goutside3 copy BlackSedgwick County Extension, the City of Wichita, and Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks are excited to launch g2g Outside, a fun-filled program kicking off just in time for summer from June 1st – August 15th 2009.

g2g Outside features weekly photography and poetry contests, scavenger hunts, art and memory book contests, and a series of play dates in local parks.  Check out the various pages of our blog for contest details and fun outdoor play ideas.  The first g2g Play in the Park event will be held at Shelter 1 in the Sedgwick County Park THIS WEDNESDAY June 3rd, 2009 from 7:00-8:00 pm.

g2g Outside will conclude on the morning of August 15th, 2009 with a showcase event at the Sedgwick County Extension office.  Winning contest entries will be displayed for the public from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm, and a grand prize drawing will take place at 11:00 am.

So, how do you guarantee that your kids will have a blast this summer?  Get back to the great outdoors, play away, and participate in g2g Outside contests.   We hope to rejuvenate the urgency that kids feel when they “got to go” outside for active exploration and fun!
