Outdoor activities with a healthy dose of curiosity, brought to you by Laure Latham
April 20, 2012
Get outside and dream up a fun game to play. You could win big! CLIF Kid® launched their 2nd Annual Backyard Game of the Year Contest. I am proud to announce that CLIF invites Frog Mom families to participate to the backyard game and win even more through an exclusive Frog Mom giveaway!
CLIF Backyard Game
Once again kids ages 6 – 12 are invited to invent their very own backyard game idea for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship, a Marin bicycle and Bell helmet and a trip to San Francisco. What better incentive to go outside and have fun? The winning game will be reproduced and donated to the Children & Nature Network, the network created by author Richard Louv who advocates more outdoors time for a healthy childhood.
Each proposed game should be created and played by kids age 6-12. There doesn’t need to be any fancy equipment, just basic things like balls and hula-hoops. What’s really needed is kids’ creativity! This is a great chance to invent the game that kids will play for hours all over the country!
Past winners: included a sponge ball fill-up, an exploratory matching game called Nature to Nature or a strategic tag game called Eagle’s Nest. All backyard fun is good!
Deadline: no entries will be received after June 17, 2012.
Winners: the top 6 finalists will be notified by email or phone on or before June 30, 2012, and then flown to San Francisco in July 2012 where they will present their games to the judges.
