Students in architecture, digital design and filmmaking programs applied for and received a $2,250 SkillsUSA Lowe’s grant to help renovate the playground on the campus of John F. Kennedy High School in Granada Hills, Calif.

The students wanted to complete a kindness-themed activity and came up with the plan to fix up that abandoned playground. They removed a tree and a fence, spread mulch and gravel, built planter boxes and painted a playhouse and a brick walkway.
