HCA Wins Playground Contest

Hillsboro Charter Academy (HCA) will soon have an Imagination Playground 120-Piece Blue Block Set after winning a national contest.

Imagination Playground sought nominations nationwide for who would receive the playground set. Hillsboro was selected from more than 300 organizations from 46 states, plus Washington D.C., that submitted nominations.

The blue blocks can be configured in any number of ways indoors and outdoors.

HCA entered the contest after its teachers asked the school’s Board of Directors to consider funding the purchase of Imagination Playground equipment. One member of the Board, HCA Parent Wendy McKenna, did some research and found the contest. Contest information was pushed out to parents in email blasts, phone calls and social media accounts.

The efforts paid off with the new playground.
