Meet the Winning School of Project Playground!

Culturelle Project Playground

Congratulations to North Vernon Elementary School of North Vernon, Indiana, the Grand Prize Winner of the first Culturelle® Kids Project Playground Search!

Thanks to nearly 126,000 votes that poured in from around the country, North Vernon Elementary School in North Vernon Indiana was chosen to win a brand-new playground, compliments of Culturelle® Kids! The playground at North Vernon Elementary School will serve approximately 700 students. It will also be used by the community, as it ties into the walking path around the neighborhood. In addition to providing the opportunity to climb and play, the playground will be more accessible, ensuring all children have a safe and inviting area to play. You can learn more about the project here.

Culturelle® is committed to helping kids feel good inside by promoting the immune health benefits that come with outdoor play. 

That’s why Culturelle® Kids, the #1 pediatrician recommended brand, invested $100,000 in the Project Playground program to help build a brand-new playground for one school in need.

We thank everyone who helped support kids’ immune health by voting in the Project Playground Sweepstakes and sharing it with their schools and communities.
