Six great topics plus our new Local Leaders & Legends Award
There are many fabulous school and community gardens and programs across Australia that you may already be involved with. EduGrow recognizes and aims to build upon these, especially to support and connect schools and people in remote, regional and rural areas who are doing special things where they live.
This year there are six award topics – you can choose to enter one or as many as you like!
They provide lots of scope to have fun, be creative and to celebrate what your school and community have got growing. And you can also nominate someone special from your school community for the new Local Leaders & Legends Award.
