 How does it work 

The children have done a fantastic job getting into gardens and growing some great sunflowers this year. However, we do recognise that not everyone had sunflowers bloom in time or reach a suitable height by the end of the project due to the weather. Keeping this in mind, we have decided to launch a Late Bloomers Award to recognise those kindergartens in regions that may have struggled.

Kindergartens can send in photos and measurements of their best blooming sunflowers from Monday December 14th 2015 until 5pm Tuesday 9th February 2016.


Awards and Prizes

There will be two awards given out overall:


Prizes
Late Bloomers Tallest Sunflower
$150 Daltons product voucher
A framed photo of their winning sunflower
Prizes
Late Bloomers Widest Sunflower Face
$150 Daltons product voucher
A framed photo of their winning sunflower
