The parks staff in Prince George County (MD) know the secret to getting kids active outdoors: art - and they're showing us why in a special exhibit.
Their year long 'Get to Know' youth arts contest wrapped up this December with the opening of their gallery exhibition. Stationed at the Hyattsville Sports & Learning Complex, the exhibit features a vibrant collection of drawings, paintings, 'found art' crafts, as well as group projects created in the county's parks and community centers. One in particular - a snow plow mural painted by 33 youth as part of a poetry camp - qualified as a winner in the national Get to Know Contest judged annually by Disney Interactive.
The exhibition is open now until January 4th.
