Celebrate with the KidsGrow Contest!
"What does your garden grow?"
grows in your garden, whether it is tangible or intangible. Entries can be submitted by individuals, or by a class or group. Each week we’ll choose a favorite entry to receive a prize package, and at the end of the month we’ll award two grand prize winners – one to an individual and one to a group or class.
Teachers, caregivers, and parents:
KidsGardening.org asks kids (0-18) to submit photos, video, song, drawing, artwork, or words (essay, poem) about what grows in their garden. Creativity is encouraged. If you work with kids who aren't verbal or who don't write, an adult can caption their entry (or not). Entries can be submitted by one of the following methods:
- Tagging us on social media (see our handles below) and using the hashtag #KidsGardenMonth
- Email the entry to [email protected]
- Send us snail mail:
132 Intervale Rd
Burlington VT 05401
Submitting an entry via social media, email, or mail gives KidsGardening.org permission to use the entry in the future. We welcome entries from around the world, but only U.S. entries will be considered for prizes.
The Kids Garden Month 2019 contest is open from April 1 - April 30, 2019.
Each week, KidsGardening judges will randomly select one favorite entry from the week to receive a weekly prize. Weekly awardees will be announced via social media on Tuesdays. (4/9, 4/16, 4/23, 4/30). Weekly prizes will be comprised of fun gardening gear for kids.
All group and individual entries will be eligible for the grand prizes. KidsGardening judges will choose two grand prize winners: one individual and one group or class.
