Sully Amundson awarded scholarship for growing 11-pound cabbage

Bonnie Plants sent participating students a starter O.S. Cross variety cabbage plant and the lessons needed to care for and nurture their plant every step of the way. Once fully grown, students took a photo with their cabbage and submitted it for a chance to win.

A student from Gussner Elementary School in Jamestown is earning a lot of “green” after being selected as North Dakota’s winner of the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program .

Sully Amundson, of Ypsilanti, has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Bonnie Plants as well as Best in State bragging rights for growing a cabbage that weighed more than 11 pounds.

Bonnie Plants relaunched the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program this year as a remote-friendly learning activity to safely bring education outdoors.

At the start of the program, Bonnie Plants sent participating students a starter O.S. Cross variety cabbage plant and the lessons needed to care for and nurture their plant every step of the way. Once fully grown, students took a photo with their cabbage and submitted it for a chance to win.

Sully was selected by Bonnie Plants in collaboration with the North Dakota Department of Agriculture based on the student’s enthusiasm to participate and learn in addition to the size and overall appearance of her cabbage.

“The Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program is a wonderful way for teachers and parents to introduce children to agriculture through a hands-on, engaging and memorable learning experience,” said Doug Goehring, North Dakota agriculture commissioner. “It was inspiring to see the impressive cabbages that the students in North Dakota were able to grow and it’s a great way to teach them where their food comes from.”
