Think big. Play Big.

Playgrounds aren’t limited to spaces for swings and seesaws. Playgrounds are the mountains we hike up and ski down, the skate and terrain parks that consume our days, and all the places boosting our next adventure.

But what would our world, our lives, be without these playgrounds? The future of these outdoor spaces depends on our consciousness now. There is an abundance of inspired ideas to protect local environments, but these visions don’t always have the resources to take flight.

Protect Your Playground exists to empower and inspire solutions for environmental issues that threaten all kinds of playgrounds. By providing innovative, eco-minded individuals with the tools and funding they need to turn their ideas into action, together we can make a big impact.

01 - Come up with an Idea
Born with a penchant to save the world? Newly-passionate about climate change? Whatever your motivation, no idea is too small.
02 - Apply
Choose your resort, give it some thought and submit your application by February 18, 2015.
03 - We'll Review Applications
A committee of resort employees will review and select viable projects to bring to the public via social channels. The decision will ultimately lie with the committee, but the more buzz generated around your idea, the more clout it will have with the judges and community friends and guests.
04 - Winners Are Chosen
If selected, you will be notified by the resort and awarded funding.
05 - Carry out your Idea
The fun part! Make your idea happen and revel in the fact that you’ve made a difference.
