Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

Phillips County recently received recognition as a 2013 Colorado Lottery Starburst Award winner for the Homesteaders Park playground, turf field and disc golf course.

The county was one of 15 recipients of the award, which recognizes excellence in the use of lottery funds for community and conservation projects across the state of Colorado. Starburst nominations are reviewed, and winning projects are chosen based on the creativity of the project, economic and social impact to the community and whether the project achieved its goal.
