Plant Mash-up 2022 Contest Winners

Seed Your Future and Scholastic are proud to announce the winners of the Plant Mash-up 2022 Contest. The “Plants to the Rescue! Plant Mash-Up” contest and sweepstakes engaged middle-school students in imagining and illustrating their own plant hybrid. Thousands of middle-schoolers across the country selected a challenge in their community, then described and drew their own unique plant-based solution.

The contest was predicated on a robust suite of lesson plans and activities created by Seed Your Future and Scholastic and delivered to students inside and outside of the classroom. These materials are part of the BLOOM! campaign to educate and inspire young people about the power of plants and green-collar career opportunities.
