Play Everywhere Challenge

People don’t just want great parks and playgrounds; they want a complete reimagining of what our urban spaces and places look like, from sidewalks and bus stops to health clinics and laundromats.

Play is a Competitive Advantage

KaBOOM! recently held the Play Everywhere Challenge—a national competition that awarded $1 million in prizes for the 50 best replicable, scalable innovations in city redevelopment and design that will help make play easy, available, and fun for kids and families.

More than 1,000 applications were submitted, and of that, 200 finalists were chosen. Now, we have our winners! These projects represent a wide range of creative, replicable, and fun ways to get more kids and families playing every day.
