Natick Student’s Got Game…Debuts in Sports Illustrated Kids

You can help a South Natick’s Memorial School student in his quest to win a unique contest sponsored by Pepperidge Farms’ Goldfish Crackers!

The intent of the Extreme Games Challenge is to get kids to get up, play the games, and get active.

The Goldfish Games Extreme Challenge contest prompted 9 year old Nicolas Zonghi to create a game of his own design – Hide and Seek Ball Tag – which combines his passion for dodge ball with the ever popular childhood favorite.

Nicolas is one 6 finalists competing for Goldfish’s top spot which provides the winner with $1,000 to be used for athletic equipment.

Voting is open until April 30.

“We are thrilled to be able to help the youth of America get active and promote a healthy lifestyle in an engaging way with the new Goldfish Games platform and contest,” says Steve White, vice president, Youth Snacks Division at Pepperidge Farm. “With the growing issue of childhood obesity and the increasingly sedentary lifestyle of Americans today, the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish brand feels passionately about encouraging change and making physical activity and the use of imagination a fun and important part of children’s lives.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In the meantime, the newly minted game impresario is enjoying his status as a finalist for the moment.  He won a trip to the NBA All Stars game in Phoenix, will be included in the June edition of Sports Illustrated Kids, and has shot a commercial for the Cartoon Network.
