Kids can win playground

PRIMARY school pupils in the Sidmouth area can win their school a new playground worth �25,000.

School grounds specialist Playforce, with office stationary supplier Viking Direct, is offering playgrounds to two schools – one in the UK and one in Ireland.

For a chance to win, pupils are being invited to design their dream playground, working on their own or in groups. Teachers can even turn it into a class activity. The more innovative and creative the design, the better. Each entrant and school can submit as many designs as they want.

Playforce managing director Colin McAdam said: “Play is inherent to a child’s social, physical and emotional development. We are pleased to offer children the opportunity to win a playground for their school and we look forward to seeing some inspiring designs. We hope this competition will present a chance for creativity to flourish.”

The competition runs until March 31, 2011. Visit for entry details.
