Calling all Sunflowers! September 5, 2014

Posted by bsciencecenter in Uncategorized.

Last spring, the Science Center gave each student in the town of Burlington an opportunity to sprout and take home their very own sunflower plants and participate in our “Largest Sunflower Contest.”


Here are the details:

All entries are due by September 30th!

Please take a photo of you with your sunflower and attach it to your entry form or send your photo to pavlicek@bpsk12.org.  (You do not need to bring in your flower to school but we encourage you to dry out the head and keep the seeds to plant for next year)

-Measure both the height of your sunflower –from the ground to where the flower begins.

-Measure the diameter of the seed area only-exclude the petals of the flower.

Next week, classroom teachers will receive the contest entry forms.  Click here to print and fill out an entry form.  You can send the form and your picture to the Science Center via mail or pavlicek@bpsk12.org or ask the classroom teacher to put it through the office mail.


Good luck and we look forward to seeing your flowers!
