Cornell Container Competition Calls for Entries
The Container Design Competition that takes place each year at the Cornell Floriculture Field Day is looking for entries for this year’s contest.
The event will take place on July 24, 2012 at Cornell University. The competition is sponsored by New York State Flower Industries.
This competition is in honor of Kathy Pufahl, a visionary in spring container design. A small fee is collected from each entrant and all proceeds are donated to her charity of choice – Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research at Mt. Sinai Hospital.
The organization’s goal this year is to reach $10,000 in donations.
There are multiple categories for professionals and home gardeners. A new category for this year – first time entries. There will be a morning educational program followed by an afternoon outdoors viewing the annual/perennial trials and the announcement of the container contest winners.
