Parliament Place Elementary School has been the site of vandalism in recent months and parents have become increasingly concerned about the safety and condition of the school’s fields and playgrounds.
“Hey people of North Babylon, as many know, Parliament Place playground is pitiful and the (contest) gives us a chance for a school to win a new playground by just voting,” Stolberg-Beck wrote on Facebook. “It’s easy and free and doesn’t take but two minutes. Please help a fellow school out.”
The contest, which runs through March 15, features two grand prizes: $30,000 in prizes for a school’s wellness program and a new playground from Playworld Systems. Three runners-up will receive $5,000 in prizes for a school’s wellness program.
