As part of the fourth annual contest, all recreation departments and camps could enter to win a playground for their community that will help children develop skills that transcend the playground, including motor skills, cognitive planning and cooperation. The village of Waunakee will install this brand-new playground in a space that needs, but doesn’t have, a place for children to play.

 “Playgrounds and parks play an important role in providing a space for families to be active, to socialize and get much-needed time outdoors,” said Michael Phelan, president and CEO of BCI Burke. “We are so happy to be able to partner with Northstar Publishing, Inc. and provide this community with a playground that will provide years of active enjoyment and development,” Phelan added.

The village is planning to install the playground behind their community center to provide an additional place for children and families to gather and play.

Winner Jeff Skoug said, “On behalf of the Village of Waunakee, I’m grateful for the gift of this playground. It will be a welcome addition to our park and allow us to increase programming for summer day camps and playgroups that use our facility. Adding more spaces for our community to get out and play is part of our mission at the Village and we’re excited to install this new playground for everyone to use.”
