Students at Brusly elementary are anxiously awaiting the construction of a new playground.
The students received $10,000 for a new jungle gym.
They won the cash after entering an internet contest sponsored by non-profit organizations Kaboom and NFL Play60.
The kids had to submit video of a "Play Day" combining fun, while improving their school at the same time.
America voted, and Brusly was picked as one of two winners.
The prize money will now be put to a bigger pot.
The school has been raising cash for a new play set for months.
Thanks to additional help from the community, the playground purse is up to $30,000 .
