HISD’s Park Place Elementary School was one of only three campuses from across the nation to win a $1,000 prize for creating an outdoor habitat for songbirds.

The school was selected from among dozens of submissions to Scott’s ‘Save the Songbirds” initiative, whose goal is to save a million songbirds by creating more than 50,000 acres of habitat nationwide.

Participating schools had to create a space on their campus that provided food, a water source, shelter, and a place to build a nest. They also had to submit photos that showed all of those elements.

“You can tell that the winning schools spent some time (designing these habitats),” said Scott’s Wild Bird Food Marketing Brand Manager Rob Lamp. “It was more than just throwing up a bird feeder.”

The Save the Songbirds program was launched in 2011 and the contest is open to students in grades 1–4.
