The Jackson Hole Children’s Museum is one lucky winner. The nonprofit organization just received $20,000 from Tom’s of Maine, the toiletries company that makes its products with natural ingredients.
The museum was one of 52 winners in a photo contest — the 50 States of Good competition — that let it show how it gives back to its community. The museum posted a photo with #OneWayToLive.
Julie D’Amours, the education director for the museum, said the museum will put the money to good use.
“The money will be used for updates and expansion of our exhibits and enhancements of our programming,” she said.
D’Amours said part of the money has bought supplies for the bat exhibit at the museum. It also allowed the organization to add holiday programs.
Jackson Hole Children’s Museum will have a tie-dye snowflake-making day from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. Tuesday. Kids also will make snow globes from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, and participate in a New Year’s Eve event at the same time Thursday.
