Celebrate Earth Day and win eco-friendly equipment for your playground

Underwriters Laboratories—the “UL in a circle” on the back of products to show it has been tested for safety—is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day by helping KaBOOM! save play!

You can get in on the fun, too! To help moms across the country get their kids active and healthy outdoors, UL is sponsoring a national contest where communities can win one of four eco-friendly and innovative Imagination Playground™ in a Box systems.

Designed by architect David Rockwell, Imagination Playground™ in a Box offers a changing array of elements that allow children to constantly build and re-build their play space.

It’s easy to enter the contest. Visit our Playspace Finder and become a “fan” of a playspace in need of an Imagination Playground™ in a Box. If the playspace you’d like to support isn’t currently listed, click the “Add a Playspace” button and enter the information requested. Then, get as many people as possible to “fan” your playspace. We’ll take a look at the entries with the most fans and will pick four deserving sites to win.

Kids LOVE Imagination Playground™ in a Box, so if you know of a playspace—such as a school, a daycare center, or an after-school program—that could use one of these innovative, eco-friendly systems, become a fan and spread the word!
