As you may have heard, The Galiano Community School is one of the TOP TEN FINALISTS in a contest to win a $100,000 playground. We need your votes to win. The 3 towns with the most online votes get $100,000. We are currently in the top 5 but as the smallest community in the contest we need help from other islands to win.

The Galiano Community School playground is over 35 years old. As components get too old, they are removed but not replaced. If the District deems our playground to be unsafe (which it is!), they will tear it down with no plans or money to rebuild. Any future playground will be purchased by funds raised by parents. This contest is our best shot at raising enough money. Help our kids win an improved, engaging and safe playspace!
