The City of Eugene wants to know: What’s your favorite Park? In recognition of Kids to Parks Day, May 17, the City of Eugene is sponsoring an essay contest. Children between the ages of 5 and 13 could win a 30-day Family Pass to Amazon Pool just for writing about their favorite Eugene Park!
Enter in the 5-9 years old or 10-13 years old division by May 15. (One pass will be issued for each category.) Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, grammar, and spelling. All essays should include the answers to at least two of these three questions:
• What is your favorite Eugene Park?
• What do you like to do there?
• How do you think we could get more kids outside to play?
An official essay entry form is available at the link below or any City Community Center or Pool. Entries may be submitted by mail, hand delivery or email, but must be received by 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 15. See the entry form for details. For more information about the essay contest, call Carrie Peterson, POS Marketing and Outreach Manager, 541-682-4814.
