Seed Your Future has created the Plant Mash-Up contest to inspire and educate middle schoolers about the power of plants.
Students will think strategically as they imagine, describe, and draw. They combine two plants based on their properties to create a hybrid plant to solve an issue in their community. The contest gives children the opportunity to see themselves as problem-solvers, learn they can impact their community, and have fun with plants. The more we expose children to plants in different ways, the more likely they are to have a passion for a career working with plants.
Students in grades 6–8 will envision, draw, and describe their own hybrid plant to solve a challenge in their community.
