If you host a Play Day, you could win a $10,000 grant to spruce up a local park!

NFL PLAY 60Here's one more reason to host a Play Day Sept. 19-27!

NFL PLAY 60 is offering Play Day communities $25,000 in grants to come together to improve their local parks and playspaces with clean-ups and simple enhancement and construction projects.

Two $10,000 grants and five $1,000 grants will be awarded. The $10,000 "Playspace Improvement" grants will be awarded to the top two vote-getters in the "Best Play Day" voting competition, which will run from Nov. 3 through Dec. 1. To be eligible for the voting competition, Play Days must include a park improvement or spruce up project as part of their Play Day. The five $1,000 "Play Day Award" grant recipients will be chosen by KaBOOM! and NFL PLAY 60, and will be given to Play Days that were impressive or unique in their own way.

You can learn more about the grants here. The grant application will be available Sept. 28. In the meantime, consider how you can incorporate a park improvement or spruce up project in your Play Day, and start planning if you haven't already!
