DPR Bay Area Now Building Sandcastles

DPR’s Bay Area regional offices competed in the 28th annual LEAP Sandcastle Competition Saturday, October 8, 2011. DPR’s two teams competed against 20 other teams of contractors teamed with architects and schools.

The teams arrived around 7:30 a.m. and didn’t leave until the results were announced at 4 p.m. After a long day of shoveling sand and helping raise money for a great organization, DPR’s teams won the Best Integration of Theme award and the Best Participation of Leap Kids award and most importantly, had a great time.

DPR will continue to support Leap’s efforts to stimulate imagination and creativity in Bay Area children by bringing visual and performing artists and architects into the classroom for extended residencies, interweaving all aspects of learning in with the creative process. Leap was established in 1979 as a response to the passing of California Proposition 13, which dramatically reduced state funding for education and effectively eliminated the art from public elementary schools.
