Third Graders Grow Cabbage For National Scholarship Competition

← Back Print This Article

Third Graders in Mrs. Sterbal's room had fun growing cabbages this summer as part of the Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program. 
 
At the end of the 2018-2019 school year, the students were given a cabbage plant and if they were interested, they could plant it and see how large it grew.
 
Students who submit their cabbage head for consideration in Bonnie Plants' Scholarship Program.  After September 30, Bonnie Plants will randomly select one winner from each state to receive a $1,000 scholarship.
 
The program is designed to promote a love of gardening through growing cabbage plants.
 
Hunter Slavonic's cabbage grew to weigh six pounds. Jake Linden's cabbage was 11 inches in diameter and weighed 7.2 pounds.  Both students were excited to participate in the program and enjoyed tending to their plants.  
 
Those two cabbage heads generated a lot of cole slaw and stuffed cabbage for the Slavonic and Linden families!  Please click here to see some photos of the students with their cabbage heads.  Great job!
