High School Essay Contest


Theme:  2016-2017 'We Need our Pollinators'



The contest is open to high school students attending 9th through 12th grades. The entry must be sponsored by: single garden club, group of member clubs, councils or districts; or a state garden club. All entries become the property of NGC.


A $1,000 NGC Scholarship will be awarded to the national winner. If the winner is an underclassman, the $1,000 Scholarship will be held by NGC without accrued interest, until such time that the student enters college. At that time, the money will be forwarded to the Financial Aid Officer of the college that the student will enter. The second place winner will receive $100.
