Go Play!, an international non-profit that designs and builds playspaces as a holistic means of improving education, health and the well-being of children in the developing world, is sponsoring a design competition - Play for all - to promote innovate playgrounds that create meaningful experiences, that emphasize free play, exploration and collaboration. Designs should be innovative, using sustainable and recycled or repurposed building materials that are affordable, buildable, safe, durable, and of course, fun.

Announced September 17 on the Open Architecture Network, the open-to-all competition will award $1000 USD to the winning design team to assist with travel costs to oversee the building of their design with the help of Go Play!’s project manager. The winning playground design will be built for a school for refugee children along the border of Thailand and Burma (Myanmar).

Registration ends November 17, 2010, and all entries should be submitted by midnight January 03, 2010 (PST). Visit Play for all to learn more about the competition, Go Play!, and to enter.
