Week 1 Winners in the 2021 WinterKids Winter Games

We’re proud to announce the official winners for week 1 of the WinterKids Winter Games, focused on outdoor physical activity and health circles!

This year’s fourth annual Winter Games were adapted for hybrid and remote learning models in schools and built around a “circles” theme focused on resilience, community, and inclusion. Our participants kicked off week 1 in style, sharing circles all across Maine and New Hampshire-Circles in nature, circle imprints in the snow, arm circles, and more!

Students, Teachers, and Families Impacted in Maine & New Hampshire since 2010!

WinterKids is the only nonprofit in Maine dedicated exclusively to increasing outdoor physical activity in children and families during our longest, most sedentary season.  

The shorter, darker, and colder days of winter and the increasing allure of screen time make it all too easy for kids and families to “hibernate.”  At WinterKids, we make it our business to provide kids, parents, and teachers with the right option: to get outside, get active, and have fun in the winter – and year-round.

Outdoor kids are active kids. Active kids are healthy kids. Healthy kids are happy kids. Happy kids are “winter kids.”
