Deadline – 2022 Sunflower Growing Competition
June 1 @ 9:00 am - July 1 @ 5:00 pm
Join Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County for our 2022 Sunflower Growing Competition!
This contest is free and open to all youth in Orange County ages 5-19 as well as all Orange County 4-H youth
members. If you are a teacher, 4-H Club leader, or other youth leader in Orange County, you can register the
youth in your class, club, or group. Registration closes on Wednesday, June 1st.
We will mail a packet of five sunflower seeds and growing instructions for each registered youth later this month.
For teachers, 4-H Club leaders, and other youth leaders, we will mail you individual packets of seeds for the total
number of youths you register and let you distribute them.
The seeds should be planted between June 1st and June 15th. We will follow up with you throughout the summer.
Your flowers will bloom in late August and September. Contest submission can be made online from August 15th
through September 30th. Prizes will be awarded to youth for the tallest plant and largest bloom.
