At the closing ceremony of the Washburn Games, the winner(s) of the two $1,000 educational scholarships will be announced (need not be present to win). One will be given to the family who raises the most money for Washburn Center. One will be randomly selected from all of the children who raised $100 or more.
The award(s) will be made into a 529 Plan for the benefit of the winning child. More information will be provided to the parent(s) of the winner(s) after the Washburn Games.
Washburn Center for Children is Minnesota’s leading children’s mental health center that offers transformative therapy to children experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression and learning difficulties.
The nonprofit has helped Twin Cities children have happier, healthier futures since 1883. As a vital community resource, Washburn Center serves nearly 3,600 children and approximately 10,800 family members each year through an array of center-based, in-home and school programs.
A parent or teacher wouldn’t think twice about getting help for a child suffering from a physical injury. Washburn Center ensures caregivers also have a resource to help kids who are hurting “on the inside” – because children’s mental health is as important as their physical health.

The Washburn Games will send several e-newsletters to registered families between the time they register and the day of the event. The newsletter will feature fun facts about the events, and information about Washburn Center and children. Finally, the e-newsletter will feature fundraising ideas and reminders to keep your family excited for the event.
The 4 – 12 age limit is a suggested limit. If you think your child, who’s younger than 4 or older than 12, would like to participate along with his or her siblings or friends, please feel free to register them!
Parents are welcome to participate alongside their child to the extent it doesn’t interfere with other participants. Parents are required to stay onsite and are strongly encouraged to accompany their child throughout the event.
