It is time to get outside and get growing!
Join us 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.
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 youth 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. More details to come. Prizes will be awarded to youth for the tallest plant and largest bloom.
Registration closes: Sunday, June 5th.
