Winfield school wins grand prize for bulb project

November 05, 1999

Winfield Elementary School has been selected as the grand prizewinner in the 1999 "Kids Growing With Dutch Bulbs" project from the Mailorder Gardening Association.

The association, with the International Flower Bulb Center of Holland and the Dutch Bulb Exporters Group, presented the school with 252 premium Dutch bulbs to plant around the school.

The school's gardening club works with a PTA committee whose main goal is to beautify the grounds while allowing children to have an easy, hands-on gardening experience.

The school submitted an application to the Mailorder Gardening Association for its beautification project. The school received a mix of tulip, daffodil, crocus, hyacinth, narcissus and amaryllis bulbs.

Pupils will begin planting at 3: 15 p.m. Tuesday, with help from Cub Scout Pack 733.
