Vegetable Box Competition
Open to primary schools across Yorkshire and the Humber.
The National Farmers Union and the Yorkshire Agricultural society combine to encourage schools to grow a box of vegetables for the Great Yorkshire Show, with the aim of encouraging children to enjoy eating vegetables they have grown.
For schools who already have a box there is an entry fee of £15 (but please ensure that the box and pallet are in good repair before planting). New schools are charged £30 and receive a box, pallet and compost. This is delivered in February.
For 2016 the competition was judged in two parts:
- Part 1 - Diary of the work completed by the children
- Part 2 - Planting the box for the show
