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.
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 know of someone who has done an outstanding civic project consider applying for Award #76, High School Distinguished Service Project under Youth Awards.
Follow your state award application process in order to submit a candidate to the NGC Awards Chairman.
