Scott’s Give Back to Grow Program Honors Individuals for Community Gardening
Deadline: December 2, 2005

Through its Give Back to Grow corporate caring initiative, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (<a href=""></a>) seeks to honor individuals who take pride in giving back to their communities through gardening. The annual Scotts GiveBack to Grow Awards provide support for, and promote participation in, gardening that "grows community pride."

The sixth annual Scotts Give Back to Grow Awards program is now accepting nominations in the following categories:

Scotts Classroom Gardener of the Year — Salutes elementary through high school teachers who have integrated a school gardening program into their curriculum.

Scotts Good Neighbor Gardener of the Year — Salutes gardeners who donate produce to feed the hungry in their own communities through the Plant a Row for the Hungry program (<a href=""></a>), a national campaign of the Garden Writers Association of America.

Scotts Urban Greenup Gardener of the Year — Salutes volunteers working in an urban area who have successfully used community gardening to address the various challenges of an inner-city neighborhood.

Scotts Community Beautification Gardener of the Year — Salutes volunteers who have helped beautify a main street, park, or neighborhood within their city limits and, in the process, significantly contributed to community pride.

Each winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize and public recognition for their work. Each of two finalists in each category will receive a $2,500 cash prize and public recognition for their work.

Nominations may be submitted by an individual or group. Self-nominations are also eligible.
