DISCOVERY Children’s Museum and Spread The Word Nevada recently completed a four month collaboration in conjunction with the museum’s traveling exhibit Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites. Both non-profits focus on children and education and by teaming together they both expanded their programming to elementary school students.
DISCOVERY Children’s Museum held a Scholastic Book Fair opening weekend of Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites generating more than $1600.00 in Scholastic book credits for Richard Rundle and Jack Dailey Elementary Schools. A book drive was also conducted throughout the run of the traveling exhibit where guests received a $2 discount off museum daily admission if they donated a new or gently used book. Nearly $500 in books were donated that will be distributed to Spread The Word Nevada adopted elementary schools. Additionally, nearly 1,200 Clark County School District kindergartners from 12 elementary schools experienced a school field trip to the museum including transportation sponsored by Barrick Gold.
