Our Executive Director, Chris Conard, was named Ernst & Young’s 2019 Social Entrepreneur of the Year, and we could not be more proud!
Chris was recognized for his commitment to ensuring every kid throughout the state has access to safe and healthy play at their schools. He empowers his staff to innovate around services and programs that will best serve each school and meet their individual needs. Chris has led the growth of Playworks Utah from serving five schools in 2008 to currently serving 115 schools and impacting over 65,000 kids.
We are grateful to have Chris leading the charge to help give every kid in Utah the childhood they deserve.
