OOLTEWAH, HAMILTON COUNTY — Officials at Snow Hill Elementary say the school needs a new playground and a nationally syndicated radio show may be the key to making it happen.
"Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" on WDOD Hits 96.5 is donating $10,000 to the school that gets the most votes online. And Snow Hill Elementary is one of five finalists.
The description of the playground on Kidd's website reads: "We are unable to use our playground for many days in a row because of safety hazards and fire ants. On our wooden playset, a bridge broke during play last year. This year we have no mulch on the ground, so pieces of concrete and rocks are exposed. Several children have tripped and hurt themselves because of these large rocks. Please help us, we love outside and love to exercise!! Our pre-k is also in need of a separate play space because the current playsets are too big for the little students."
