Thousands of fields were nominated, some with as many as 700,000 supporters! Those fields have now been narrowed down to 100 finalists, and your vote will help determine the winning fields.
These fields were chosen based on the feasibility of the field makeover, the location and age of the field, how often it gets used, how many events take place there, what teams use it, the number of other athletic fields in the community, the demand for the field, its condition, and the impact a field renovation would have on the community.
From May 1-31, you can vote for your favorite finalist field at www.frostedflakes.com. Do you have a field in your area that got nominated or like one with a particularly compelling story? I found a field just minutes away from where I lived in the Chicagoland area.
Those who nominated these fields described the conditions as having inadequate grass and equipment, uneven playing surfaces and other problems. The renovations will help to build community and provide better places for kids to stay active and play.
Head to the Frosted Flakes website and vote for your favorite field. Let’s help make these communities a better place for their children to earn their Strips. (You can vote once a day now through May 31st.)
