High School Distinguished Service Project
YOUTH AWARD #76
Bringing gardening and our youth together is an exciting process
and can be fun for parents, grandparents or other adult friends.
The High School Distinguished Service Project
Award along with $100 for first place and $50 for
second place may be awarded to a high school student, grade 9-12,
for an outstanding civic project making a significant improvement
for public benefit, e.g. environment, conservation, landscape,
horticulture, recycling, horticulture therapy, etc. A single member
club, group of member clubs, districts or a state garden club must
sponsor the contest.
Reach out to youth groups already formed or classes at school. Our
youth have been exposed to many different types of gardens. Those
that prove to be the most successful are those that relate to their
experiences. If you have or know of someone who has done an
outstanding civic project consider applying for Award #76, High
School Distinguished Service Project under Youth Awards.
