The IKEA Life Improvement Challenge is a contest that gives IKEA co-workers an opportunity to come together and improve the lives of others through the planning, proposal and execution of a community project. Last year, five stores received a $10,000 allowance for these projects. This year, every IKEA store will receive a $10,000 allowance for a community project.
Together with Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary staff, co-workers from the IKEA store in West Sacramento submitted a proposal to makeover the Log Cabin Classroom, and also to provide interactive signage on Zoo Sanctuary pathways. IKEA accepted this proposal and we are pleased to announce the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary will be one of three contestants competing to win the $10,000. The project that receives the highest number of text votes will be declared the winner.

"If the Zoo Sanctuary wins the IKEA Challenge Contest, we'll be able to expand our Zoo Camp and Ambassador programs" says Jocelyn Smeltzer, Zoo Director. "The one-of-a-kind, sculpted signage is especially exciting, allowing visitors to learn in different, tactile ways. All your friends will want to take their pictures in front of our colorful, hand-sculptured signage."
