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. Over the next few weeks, South Dakota Soybean will be releasing 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 during this experience.

Super Sprouts Growing Contest

Seeds will be mailed to each participating child to be planted in containers at home. Everyone will be given three weeks (April 20th- May 11th) to grow their plants as tall as they can. The child with the tallest plant in each age category will receive a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card and a shout out on our Facebook page. A complete list of instructions can be found here.

Age Categories: Kindergarten and Under, 1st-4th Grade, 5th-8th Grade and 9th-12th

To Enter: Message our Facebook page with your child’s name, address, and grade level or email Deadline to Register is April 15th! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates!
