Food Growing League (NC1A): Final Round – Sunflowers

The inaugural Season of the Food Growing League comes to an end in this 5th and Final Round.  First place was a four way tie that came down to who grew the most Sunflowers by weight to determine the League Champion for the 2017-2018 Spring Season. Watch the video and view the results below to print out and share in your classroom.

Total combined harvests for all classes comes to 2096.74 grams or 4.613 lbs. Here’s the individual breakdown by classroom which varied in number of students ranging from 13 to 26 pupils per class:

428.11g – Sugarloaf Class B
398.33g – Sugarloaf Class A
353.72g – Cone Class A (only grew for 4 rounds)
328.98g – Sugarloaf Class C
317.20g – Sugarloaf Class D
270.40g – Stokesdale Class A

These harvests helped feed birds, chickens, turtles, hamsters, and even groundhogs.

Special thanks to Cone, Stokesdale, and Sugarloaf Elementaries for participating. Due to a schoolwide schedule change, Cone Elementary could not take part in the final round.

Thanks also to our sponsors Bulldog Printing, Pita Delite, and 1618 Concepts for helping fund this program.

If your school didn’t get a chance to participant this Spring, we’re currently recruiting for next fall.
