More about the Horitculture Contest

We are very proud of our young botanists! All exhibitors must have cared for their plant for at least 90 days prior to the show. Some exhibitors begin their projects with small plants and as the years go by, the judges see the plants grow and mature right along-side the students who display them. Students also grow a variety of vegetables in their gardens to display.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost? $5 fee for each entry ($30 maximum for each exhibitor).
