Free pumpkin growing contest for kids

-A A +A

Campbellsville Farm Credit is sponsoring a FREE pumpkin growing contest for kids ages 18 and under in Marion, Washington, Adair, Green, and Taylor counties. The seeds and growing guides are provided by the Farm Credit Mid-America office in Campbellsville, which serves the counties mentioned.
Each participant will receive a printed photo of themselves with their prize pumpkin. The winner, with the heaviest pumpkin in each county, will receive the photo, an award certificate, plus their picture published in a paid ad in their local newspaper to announce their accomplishment. The overall winner from all counties will receive all of the previous, plus a $50 gift card and five-county bragging rights.
Judging will take place during the week of Oct. 21-25, and seeds will ideally need to be planted before the end of June to allow for maximum growth.
The free entry packets can be picked up at the Campbellsville Farm Credit Mid-America office at 180 W. 1st Street in Campbellsville, or they can be mailed for free by calling (270) 789-2396 or by emailing jessica.doughty@e-farmcredit.com.
