Cone Elementary (Greensboro) takes on Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale) and newcomer Northview Middle (Hickory) goes up against Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh) for the best Tendergreen Harvest.
As a Bonus Round, we have Pet Food Sales after the matches. This Bonus Round allows students in the League using our GrowBuck program to sell their harvests to other students. This way students have another way to win plus get to practice their math and financial literacy skills.
