SanchezNatureKidsArea-091719 (48)

Pueblo, Colo. - For fiscal year 2020, Colorado Lottery recognizes the City of Lafayette Nature Kids Discover Zone and Inspire Trail with a Starburst Award. Colorado Lottery proceeds recently passed $3.5 billion.  Colorado Lottery Starburst Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery funds for community and conservation projects.  The capital project consists of an internationally recognized nature discovery zone on the campus grounds of Boulder Valley School District’s Alicia Sanchez International Elementary School. The project creates a place where local children can explore and discover their natural surroundings in their immediate neighborhood. These two projects were funded by a collaboration of contributors, including a grant from GOCO for $960,580.

“This year’s Starburst Awards showcase the diverse uses of Lottery money -- ballfields, bike parks, playgrounds, riparian zones, and of course, massive land purchases. These Starburst awards demonstrate just a fraction of the ways Lottery dollars are going to work wherever and however Coloradans like to play."  Tom Seaver, director of the Colorado Lottery
