May 4-10-- Screen-Free Week Contest -- Screen-free week (formerly TV-Turnoff Week & Digital Detox Week) is an annual celebration where children, families, schools and communities turn off screens and turn on life. Instead of relying on screens for entertainment participants read, daydream, explore, enjoy nature and spend time with family and friends. It isn’t just about snubbing screens; it’s a springboard for lifestyle changes that will improve well-being and quality of life all year round. To learn more, visit: www.screenfree.org/

Celebrate Screen-free Week at SSLDL by making a pledge to go screen-free for 24 hours. Fill out a contest form telling us your start and end time and what you did instead of watch TV, play video/computer games, text, etc. (one entry per person). Please include your name, phone number and age. You will be entered into a drawing for a year-round Michigan Recreation Passport and Kensington Metro Park Pass (includes access to Huron-Clinton and Oakland County Metroparks). The drawing will be held and winner announced on Monday, May 11.
