CORVALLIS, Ore. -- A Corvallis Elementary School will soon be receiving a much-needed update to it's playground, all thanks to one student's sweepstakes entry.
Nickelodeon will be putting $10,000 towards installing a playground at a Wilson Elementary School in Corvallis.
The popular children's TV network picked Sophia Martin's entry as the winner for their playground sweepstakes.
Martin's entry stated how Wilson Elementary was in desperate need of new equipment. Sophia said that the whole school is looking forward to having the new equipment to play on during recess.
Wilson Elementary will be putting the money toward a structure estimated to cost around $60,000. The school is organizing fundraisers to get the remaining money and anticipates that they can move forward on the project in Spring.
