The Jewish School of the Arts Secures Imagination Playground
New York, NY
The Jewish School of the Arts in Palm Beach, FL has secured an Imagination Playground and Play Associate Training (a value of $7,500) from over 1,000 entries from the company's summer promotion. The Jewish School of the Arts provides for the physical, intellectual and emotional growth of children through activities that are child-directed and teacher guided. At the school and camp, children gain readiness skills for future learning through dramatic play, visual aids, manipulatives and more. "We are a creative, modern school always looking to discover new ways to fulfill our mission." said Brocha Benhiyoun, who was instrumental in rallying the school community to vote. "With the newly awarded Imagination Playground we feel our mission will be greatly enhanced. We wait in great anticipation and excitement to include this highly regarded play tool into our cutting edge school as we expand further in our community."
The company had originally intended for the program to have three voting periods, but based on the overwhelming response; the company has extended the program. From July 26th through August 20th, organizations will have another chance to cast their votes to be awarded an Imagination Playground and Play Associate Training. The awardee will be announced on August 22nd. "With over 22,000 votes in this last round of the promotion, we believed we had to extend the opportunity." explained Dave Krishock, President of Imagination Playground. "We are delighted with the number of entries; it is heartwarming to see so many votes being cast for kids and free play!"
