Naming Contest for the City of Springfield’s Healthy Body Gallery at Kidzeum
Springfield, IL – Kidzeum of Health and Science and the City of Springfield are hosting a city-wide naming contest for the Kidzeum’s flagship exhibit, The Healthy Body. Because of the city’s support of the Kidzeum through Tax Increment Financing (TIF) funds, Springfield was named the sponsor of the Healthy Body Gallery. Both entities are now looking to Springfield to help name this one-of-a-kind exhibit that will demonstrate the city’s commitment to healthy lifestyles and education.
The Healthy Body exhibit is a 3-story, 40-foot tall inside look at a healthy body that children will be able to climb in, through and around to learn about the human body. There are over 100 engagements in the exhibit that include a crawl through intestine, a sneezing nose, femur climb, set a bone and much, much more. Visitors will learn about each body system and how to keep them healthy but in a way they learn best…through play. The winning name will receive a one-year family membership to Kidzeum.
Guidelines for submissions:
Submissions must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 23, 2017 (11:00 a.m.). Entries from individuals must include the participants name, address, phone number and if under the age of 18, please include the individual’s date of birth, school, grade level, and parent/guardian contact information. Kidzeum reserves the rights to use the winning name as they see fit.
The winning name for the Healthy Body Gallery will be announced at Kidzeum’s Construction Kick-off on June 29, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. The Adams block will be closed between 4th and 5th Streets for a construction ceremony followed by a bubble blast and exploration of construction and rescue vehicles.
