Week 3 Winners in the 2021 WinterKids Winter Games

Week 3 Winners in the 2021 WinterKids Winter Games

Schools across Maine and New Hampshire have been moving and learning outdoors during the WinterKids Winter Games. The Games are encouraging teachers to get kids (and their families!) away from screens and outside, whether the students are in school, learning through a hybrid model, or fully remote learning!

The children just wrapped up week 3 of the Winter Games, focused on family engagement and social/community service. Participating teachers who submitted photos and videos of their favorite moment of the week were entered to win prizes, and we’re proud to announce our winners!

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.”
