Tornado-Ravaged School Wins Synthetic Turf Field Award

A tornado-ravaged high school in Greensburg, Kan., and an elementary school in an economically challenged area of Philadelphia are the grand prize winners of the Synthetic Turf Council's 2010 Search for the Real Field of Dreams contest. The annual awards program recognizes synthetic turf sports fields and community parks that have enhanced their communities.

In May 2007, an eight-man football (pictured) opened on the campus of what would become the new Kiowa County School, a $50 million K-12 LEED Platinum facility that was dedicated last month. The field hosts high school and youth games, and reports indicate that Greensburg's population is slowly returning to pre-tornado numbers.
