Colorado Lottery Starburst Award to LCIS Playground
The envelope please! Twenty-one winners in 19 different communities have been selected as Colorado Lottery 2015 Starburst Award recipients, and the Lake County Intermediate School Playground is one of them. Starburst Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery funds for community and conservation projects. Winners are chosen based on the creativity of the project, the economic and social impact on the community, and whether the project achieved its goal.
The total Colorado Lottery proceeds represented in these 21 projects is more than $8.6 million. Recipients received project funding from one or more of the Lottery’s four beneficiaries; Great Outdoors Colorado, The Conservation Trust Fund, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and Building Excellent Schools Today.
“These projects display how important outdoor recreation is to both Coloradans and visitors,” said Lottery Director Laura Solano. “The Lottery congratulates and recognizes the 2015 Starburst winners for their vision in creating quality recreation opportunities in their communities.”
