Sponsors Sought for Bay Game Activity Book
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invites citizens, businesses and organizations to become a part of the 2013-2014 Maryland Bay Game through a variety of sponsorship opportunities! Now in its 16th year, this exciting activity booklet is given to schools, libraries, State Parks, and visitor centers to be enjoyed by children all summer long.
“It is through our generous sponsors that we are able to provide kids all across Maryland with fun, environmental lessons and activities so that they may grow to become responsible and informed stewards,” said DNR Secretary John Griffin.
DNR publishes the free activity book annually in celebration of the State’s wealth of natural resources, rich history and inquiring young minds. Through games, trivia, puzzles and outdoor fun, this award-winning natural resources activity book has inspired kids ─ many of whom are now adults ─ to learn about and connect with their natural world.
The publication is sought-after by tens of thousands of families, civic and community groups, scouting organizations, environmentalists and educators throughout Maryland and the region. One-quarter million print copies were distributed statewide in 2012 through public libraries, welcome centers, State Parks and public schools. An electronic version of the Bay Game is also available on the DNR website, which receives over 1.5 million unique visitors annually.
While the Bay Game is written and designed by DNR staff, printing and distribution is paid for entirely by sponsors. There are several opportunities for businesses to sponsor the Bay Game through logos, website exposure, full and half-page sponsorships and more. Donations are tax deductible, though sponsors should review the requirements outlined in IRS Publication 526 and consult their tax advisor.
