That's a Big Tomato! Science Center Announces Plant Growing Contest Winners
Burlington elementary school students got a chance to test their green thumbs this year in a friendly competition.
The Burlington Public Schools Science Center announced the winners of its bi-annual growing contest which this year featured a favorite for salads, pizza and Italian food lovers: the tomato.
According to a blog post by the Science Center, every other year they hold a growing contest for students in grades K-5. Every student receives a plant which the kids take home to be grown in their own garden.
This year students were provided with tomato plants and tried their best to help them grow to the largest size possible. Every student who entered the contest received an “Honorable Gardener” certificate and a science goody bag prize.
Check out the top three finishers below.
