Blue Ribbon Produce:

Have you ever grown a tomato that was perfectly round and thought, “this is the most beautiful tomato I have ever seen”? Or have you ever found a giant eggplant tucked away at the back of the plant? What about harvesting a carrot that looks exactly like legs?

Shine those green thumbs and come enter your homegrown produce in our Blue Ribbon Produce Contest which will be judged and on display for the community at the Harvest Festival.

Accepting entries for Classic, Largest, Weirdest, Most Anatomically Correct, Flower Arrangement, Biggest Tumbleweed, Longest Bindweed.

PRIZES for First Place Winners, Best in Show, and Peoples’ Choice!

Physical produce submissions (preferred and encouraged!) to the Blue Ribbon Contest will be accepted on Friday, September 20 between 9:00am-1:00 pm. Have a Garden Epic that won’t make it until September? Snap a picture and send to community@youthgardenproject.org for the digital contest. Send your submission category, measurements, and a description. Digital entries will be accepted through September 16. Questions? Call 435-259-2326.
