Staples, Chicago Bears Dream Park Challenge

Staples and the Chicago Bears have teamed up for the Dream Park Challenge to fund improvements to local parks. They are giving out four prizes:

Grand prize: $25, 000 in park improvements, plus a celebration at Soldier Field with Matt Forte.

First prize: $10,000 in park improvements.

Second prize: $5,000 in park improvements.

Runners up: $500 in park improvements.
I learned about the challenge from @shylobisnett ,who I follow on Twitter, who is championing Eugene Field to win the Grand Prize because "the field house needs serious TLC after last year's floods."

You'll have to provide some personal information to register and vote by 12:59:59 PM EDT on Monday, November 16, 2009, but it is for a good cause.

For more info & to vote visit: Staples Dream Park.
