STATEWIDE – The Maine School Garden Network announces their first-ever children‚Äôs art contest, and invites all Maine youth entering 4th to 8th grade (ages 9-13) to enter a piece of original artwork. The contest is open to all Maine children who enjoy gardening, but we especially hope to reach kids who have been involved with school gardens, community gardens or other programs with youth gardening projects. The theme is ‚ÄúGardens Grow Kids.‚ÄĚ For more information go to our website, www.msgn.org.
