The Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) is gearing up for spring and the grand opening of The Literacy Garden by offering the public a chance to win a zero-turn John Deere lawn mower valued at $2,500, sponsored by Mississippi Engine Company at 3583 I-55 S. Registration for the #Mow2Grow raffle is available at the museum or on MCM’s website, www.mschildrensmuseum.com, beginning Tuesday, February 18 through Friday, March 21. Entries are $15 each, five entries for $50 or 10 for $100. The drawing will take place on Friday, March 21 at 3:30 p.m. Registrants do not have to be present to win.

Visitors to the museum are encouraged to take a photo with the mower and share it with the museum on social media using #Mow2Grow. The best photo using this hashtag will be awarded one free entry into the drawing on March 21.

“The #Mow2Grow raffle is just one of the ways that people can contribute to the Build. Play. Grow. capital campaign,” said Elaina Jackson, MCM Marketing and Development Director. “We have raised nearly 70% of the funds for this $2 million project that will allow the museum to continue providing unparalleled experiences for all children by expanding exhibit space by 25%.”

MCM’s Build. Play. Grow. campaign seeks to build a one-of-a-kind natural outdoor space—The Literacy Garden; connect children to literacy and learning through play; and grow MCM’s capacity and sustainability. The Literacy Garden, scheduled to open in 2014, is designed to develop literacy and language skills in children ages 0-8, and is a crucial addition to the museum’s efforts to improve low literacy levels throughout Mississippi.

The museum strives to provide innovative learning experiences that tap children’s natural curiosity and creativity. For more information about how you can donate to the Build. Play. Grow. campaign, the #Mow2Grow promotion or The Literacy Garden, visit http://www.mschildrensmuseum.com.
