License Plate Available to Montana Residents: “No Child Left Inside”
National Wildlife Federation – September 25, 2012
By National Wildlife Federation
Our children spend more than 50 hours a week indoors in front of electronic devices … that’s equivalent to a full-time job!
For just one day, turn off the TV and computer console, unplug video games, leave your phone at home … and go outside.
Studies are consistently revealing that children who spend more time outside have better overall fitness, better eyesight, less stress, less depression, better grades, and a heightened awareness of the natural world. These kids tend to become better environmental stewards as adults. Montana residents now have the opportunity to help change that statistic while supporting outdoor programs by purchasing a license plate.
In addition outdoor playground equipment installed into a natural and inviting setting helps encourage kids to get outside and engaged in healthy activities.
