In the News

The Peoria Journal Star announced the finalists in the national Play Everywhere Challenge. The City of Peoria was selected from over 1000 applications to be in the next round of 200 finalists. The project submitted was part of a cross campus initiative that brought together University of Illinois School of Architecture students, Peoria County/City of Peoria Health Department and University of Illinois Extension serving Fulton, Mason, Peoria, and Tazewell Counties. Extension educator Kathie Brown facilitated the project that is part of the Designing Healthy Communities Initiative and is funded through the Office of the Provost and College of ACES Illinois Extension and Outreach Initiative.
