Ready to play? 2019 nominations are open!

We're back again with $300,000 to revitalize three play spaces in BC!

This year, 6 finalists will be chosen, then British Columbians will vote to decide which three communities will win a play space upgrade worth up to $100,000 each. Thanks to Evo Car Share, we're also awarding runner up prizes of $30,000, $20,000 and $10,000 to 4th, 5th and 6th place finalists!

Nominate a space in your community

Between April 8th to 28th, tell us about a space in your community in need of an update. We love playgrounds, but other play environments catering to a variety of age groups are eligible too! Whether it's a community garden, outdoor classroom, basketball court, youth program facility or even a music room - if it’s a place to play, gather and learn, we want to know how it can be improved and how it will impact your community.

Take a look at the Nomination Form Questions to help you prepare your submission. Please note that your nomination form cannot be partially completed and saved for completion at a later time.
