We received the following information from the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo:
We have developed a new contest for 2016 which would interest your members in horticulture and landscaping. The entry deadline is Dec. 15th, so there is still time to enter. Below is a description and attached are the rules.
This novel contest was initiated to promote landscape design knowledge and professionalism to youth for future generations of Green Industry professionals, and to educate the public on the beauty and value of landscaping. This is a team competition for Texas 4-H and FFA members. Students will be tested on their landscape design skills and knowledge of plants, plant pests and diseases. The Landscape Challenge will culminate with a final round of landscaping plots on the grounds which will be an attraction for the general public during the entire Stock Show & Rodeo.
