May 2020
Gardening Competition
“Fabulous Flowers? Vicious Veg?”

The Scout County Creative Activities Team is looking to run a different ‘creative’ competition each month. For May, we would like entrants to get ‘green fingers’ and grow a plant(s) from seed.

gardening 1The competition is open to everyone involved in Scouting and Guiding in the County of North Yorkshire (from Beavers and Rainbows through to adults).

The competition will be open for submissions until 30 September 2020, any entry received beyond that date will not be judged. Entries must be submitted to the following email address only: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Grow a plant (flowers or vegetables) from seed, using recycling materials to make containers to pot it on, and then display the results in an imaginative and creative way.

You will need to take photographs to document your progress from start to finish and submit these for judging by the end of September. Remember to keep the seed packet throughout the competition.

All entries must be submitted with the name of the entrant, Section (Beaver, Brownie etc), Scout or Guide Group, District plus Guide County details, an email or postal contact and confirmation that the entry is all the entrant’s own work. The entries will be judged in the appropriate section, all judging will be anonymous, and the decisions of the judges will be final.
