GrowIt! Chooses Student Contest Winners
GrowIt! Garden Socially announced the two grand-prize winners of its 2015 Friends & Family app contest who will receive all-expenses paid trips to Chicago, Aug. 17-20, to attend the IGC Show at Navy Pier. Hort students Brett Weiss and Sarah Swofford will have access to top-notch educational seminars, explore the tradeshow, and get quality networking time with industry influencers.
The spring contest was open to horticulture students who competed to see who could get the most followers on the GrowIt! platform. Five finalists were selected, and from those five, two grand-prize winners were chosen.
Weiss is a student at Ferrum College in Ferrum, Virginia. He picked up his love for plants at an early age and never really let go. This summer he had the opportunity to intern at Disney World in the horticulture department.
Swofford will be graduating from Texas A&M University this August. She’s had the opportunity to work in several different facets of the industry already, and says we need to “go out and take the plants to the people” to have future success.
