Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President • TEM Winner – New Mountain Hill Elementary in Fort- son, Georgia • Environmental Stewardship Award Winner – Lucy T. Davis Elementary School in Florence, South Carolina • Health and Nutrition Education Winner – Virgil Mills El- ementary in Ellenton, Florida. • Carton Art in the Garden Winner – Dunham Elementary School in Petaluma, California. Each entry is judged on specific criteria, including cre- ativity, incorporation of sustainable materials and visual representation. Classroom groups were required to re- purpose at least 100 cartons of any size in their creation, including cartons from the school cafeteria or from home. All entries were judged by the education specialists at KidsGardening. “The truth is, it was a difficult year for teachers and stu- dents alike and we weren’t sure whether many schools would be able to participate in this contest,” says Em Ship- man, Executive Director of KidsGardening. “But we saw folks come through in a way unlike ever before. The inge- nuity and passion these teams put into their projects was astounding. Participating in Carton 2 Garden allowed them to be a part of a meaningful community-focused project at a time when we’re all feeling a bit off-balance and distant.” Ten additional schools from across the country were recognized for their carton garden creations. visit www. for more details and a complete list- ing of the winners.
