Super Sprouts Program and Growing Contest
Calling all SUPER kids, parents, and educators! The South Dakota Soybean Checkoff is starting a new children’s program called “Super Sprouts” aimed to provide educational activities for families to do at home. South Dakota Soybean released videos, activities, coloring pages and a growing contest on our Facebook page and here on this blog. We hope to see many children and families get involved and learn more about planting, growing, and soybeans!
Super Sprouts Growing Contest
Congratulations to our 2020 Growing Contest winners! The tallest bean grew 17.5 inches in just 3 weeks!
About the contest: Seeds were mailed to each participating child and were planted in containers at home. Everyone was given three weeks (April 20th- May 11th) to grow their plants as tall as they could. The child with the tallest plant in each age category received a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card and a shout out on our Facebook page. A complete list of the instructions can be found here.
Age Categories: Kindergarten and Under, 1st-4th Grade, 5th-8th Grade and 9th-12th
