Leading experts on education and play will come together to share their expertise with an audience filled with parents, community leaders, business owners, politicians, school board members, and the media. The goal of this event will be to dispel myths, challenge perceptions and motivate attendees to identify and address barriers that prevent our children from getting the minimum levels of physical activity and play they need to be healthy, happy and eager learners.
