    El Paso, Texas is a PLAYFUL CITY USA!

    Help the City Earn $25,000 in Grant Funding

    As part of their National Campaign for Play, KaBOOM! has recognized El Paso, Texas as one of 31 founding Playful City USA communities in America and the only city in Texas! KaBOOM! is a national non-profit that is leading the way in promoting play as essential to the healthy development of all children. Playful City USA is their national recognition program that honors cities and towns across the nation that take the initiative to create an agenda to bring play into the lives of all their children.

    A benefit of the designation is the opportunity to participate in the 2007 Founding Playful City USA City Grant program and earn $25,000 in grant funding. This possible funding will go towards creating the “Teen Mind, Teen In Motion” program. This initiative will provide recreational and educational programs for teens after school.

    To apply for the grant the City had to create a 3 minute video demonstrating how El Paso, Texas is a “Playful City.” The next step involves our community’s participation. A major component of earning the grant is receiving votes in support of the video. We are asking and encouraging everyone to go online and vote for the El Paso video at the following website:

    The more votes we can get, the better chance the city has to receive the $25,000 grant.

    The voting period begins Friday, November 30, 2007 and closes Friday, December 21, 2007.

    Vote for El Paso…Playful City USA
