Photo and Submission Tips

Girl with Bonnie Cabbage

Lydia, the 2010 winner in Connecticut, sent in a great photo that shows the whole cabbage and all of her, too!

Each year, we receive thousands of submissions for the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program state scholarship awards. Before taking photos and submitting them to Bonnie Plants, please review the follow tips:

  • Submissions may come from a 3rd Grade teacher.
  • 4th Grade teachers can also submit winners (as students may have graduated to 4th Grade by the time their cabbage is harvested), but please also include the name of the student’s 3rd Grade teacher in the submission.
  • If necessary, parents may submit their children.
  • When taking photos, include ALL of both the child and the cabbage in the photo. Do not crop out the child or the cabbage. No bathing suits, please.
  • Take the photo when the cabbage is mature. Do not send photos of immature cabbages.
  • If sending a digital photo from your phone, please send the largest size possible. Otherwise, submit digital photos with a resolution of 300 dpi at a minimum of 4 x 6 inches. The file format must be .jpg. Please do not send PDFs or Word files!
  • Teachers (or parents) should submit winning cabbages through our official online Submission Form.
