Every other year the Science Center holds a growing contest for Burlington’s elementary students. This year’s contest is the largest sunflower! Every classroom K-5 receives a greenhouse growing kit from the center so each student can sprout their own plants to take home.
The Science Center will send out entry forms in the fall. We will award prizes for the tallest plant and the largest seedhead. All growers who participate in the contest will receive a certificate and goody bag. Good luck and don’t forget to take a picture of your plant for us to share! (no matter how big or small it is)
These our winners from our last sunflower contest in 2009.
