Garden Workshop Schedule Coming Soon!
This is a competition to see who can grow the biggest zucchini in Laramie! Zucchini is a plant that grows easily in Wyoming, but do you have what it takes to grow the biggest? The competition starts June 29 and runs until August 31, 2018. Entrants must physically bring their zucchini to the weighing area by August 31, 2018 at 7:00 pm. Second and third place winners will receive GROWyoming Swag Bags worth $100. First place winners will win a Swag Bag, a trophy, and a $25 gift certificate to the Rib and Chophouse at a total value of $200. In order to enter the competition, you must pay five dollars ($5) per zucchini by the 15th of July. After the July 15th deadline, entrants can still enter the competition but will pay a late fee of five dollars ($5) in addition to the five dollar ($5) per zucchini fee. In order for the zucchini to be weighed, it has to meet three criteria.
You can only weigh a zucchini, no other squash
The zucchini can not be tampered with in any way
The zucchini has to be grown in Laramie, Wyoming
Once the weighing takes place, a picture will be taken with the weight of the zucchini attached. There will be three winners who will be notified on September 1, 2018. The pictures of the three winners will be posted on Instagram and Facebook.
