Wow! Wow! Wubbzy, the popular preschool children’s show on Nick Jr. and Noggin, has teamed up with the National Gardening Association (NGA) to promote the benefits of gardening to children and their parents.
According to NGA, children who garden have higher self esteem, get better grades in math and science and appreciate the environment. Wow! Wow! Wubbzy has helped spread the word about the benefits of gardening by sponsoring the Wuzzleburg Preschool Garden Awards, which awards 75 preschools with $1,000 worth of gardening products and educational resources from the NGA.
“We are delighted to partner with the NGA to give this special award to these preschools,” says Amorette Jones, executive vice president, worldwide marketing for Starz Media, which produces the show along with Bolder Media, Inc. “Gardening is a proven tool in enriching children’s lives. It educates, sparks curiosity, beautifies schools and helps the environment. This award and these 75 schools will play an important role in developing future gardeners throughout the United States.”
