Schoolchildren win Golden Flower Bulb award

Four classes of schoolchildren - one class each in England, the Netherlands, Germany, and Canada - are the lucky winners of the 2017 Golden Flower Bulb Award. They won this award by participating in the Bulbs4Kids flower bulb project.

These four classes received the 2017 Golden Flower Bulb Award because they and 2,100 other classes of schoolchildren in England, the Netherlands, Germany and Canada signed up for the Bulbs4Kids flower bulb project. Bulbs4Kids is an international project meant to acquaint children in primary schools with flower bulbs by means of fun and hands-on activities.

To make planting flower bulbs even more exciting, the Bulbs4Kids project also included a photo and video competition. To become eligible for the 2017 Golden Flower Bulb Award, more than 1,000 of the participating classes submitted photos and videos. But there could be only one lucky winner in each of the four countries. The winning classes are:
  • England: Warninglid Primary School (the Kestrels Class), in Haywards Heath, West Sussex
  • The Netherlands: Rooms-Katholieke Basisschool Bernadette (group 6) in Naaldwijk
  • Germany: GGS Hobeuken (class 3a) in Sprockhövel
  • Canada: Green Timbers Elementary School (grade 6) in Surrey
Each of these winning classes received a 2017 Golden Flower Bulb Award trophy, a certificate for their classroom, a certificate for each child to take home, and a tulip umbrella.
