The Garden State On My Plate Contest
The New Jersey Agricultural Society is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Farm-City Week Poster Contest.
This year’s theme for the poster and essay contest was “The Garden State On My Plate.” The students were asked to highlight some of the many fruits and vegetables grown in New Jersey and explain why it is important to eat these fruits and vegetables every day.
Students in kindergarten through fifth grade from 18 New Jersey schools in the Learning Through Gardening program participated in the poster contest. The New Jersey Agricultural Society chose one contest winner from each school at each grade level, for a total of 58 winners. Then from those winners, a statewide grand prize winner was chosen for each grade level.
The Kindergarten grand prize winner of the poster contest is Penelope Abouata from St. Stanislaus Kostka School. Here is the poster she created:
