In Mrs. Faria’s Groves Elementary class last year as a third grader, Sophia Schnaibli received a baby cabbage seedling to take home and grow.
This was a part of the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program.
Schnaibli grew her cabbage to be an impressive 7.5 pounds, took a photo with it and entered the program’s national contest.
On December 14, 2022, Schnaibli received a letter stating that she had been selected as the 2022 Texas State winner of the national Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage program.
With the victory, Schnaibli will receive statewide recognition and a $1,000 scholarship as well.
“Here, at Bonnie Plants, we know it takes commitment and attention to plant, care for and to grow a cabbage to the size and quality you were able to achieve,” Savannah Burgess of Bonnie Plants wrote in the letter. “Sophia, you did a great job!”
The Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program began in 1996 in Union Springs, Alabama and by 2002 had become national including 48 states by then.
