If you’re a high school student entering the ninth through 12th grade this fall, living in Nebraska, and you want to do a fun, hands-on, outdoor activity with a bit of instruction and a bunch of flexibility, Nebraska Extension is again providing a summer gardening program called The Biggest Grower.

The Biggest Grower competition offers Nebraska high school students the opportunity to learn to start their own garden and small growing operation. Students will plant, grow, cultivate, harvest and distribute their own fresh specialty crops in a garden space or in containers. Participants will be randomly placed in virtual teams with one team chosen as The Biggest Grower and each team member will be awarded a $50 Amazon gift card. Runner-up team members will each receive a $25 Amazon gift card.
