2018 Pumpkin Growing Contest April 26, 2018

Posted by bsciencecenter in Uncategorized.

Every other year the Science Center holds a growing contest for Burlington’s elementary students.  This year’s contest is the largest pumpkin!  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 to take home with your students.  All pumpkins will be weighed in the FALL by the Burlington Post Office and will receive an official stamp from the post office.  The pumpkin cut-off “weigh date” will be Friday, September 28th.  All entries must be turned into the Science Center by Friday, October 5, 2018.  Please include a photo of your pumpkin! You can get the entry form and information here.

We will award prizes for the top 3 heaviest pumpkins.  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)

Her are some pictures from our last sunflower contest in 2012.
