Mountain View School in Bristol has been without a playground for two years.

Their playground became unsafe after a vandalism attack. The playscape was removed after vandals cracked holes in tubes and broke platforms. It is going to be for older kids from ages 5-12 years old. 

The school entered a contest in which Colgate, ShopRite and TerraCycle give the opportunity to win a brand new playground made from recycle materials. The school can win a playground, village playhouse, a slide and gift cards.

Mountain View School is now in second place. There are two ways for you to vote:

  1. Vote for Mountain View DAILY though this website https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/contests/colgateshopriteplayground2019
  2. Collect any brand packaging of tooth paste, toothbrushes or floss to be recycled and give it to the school.

Each vote counts as one Playground Credit for that school. You have until June 30th to vote.
