Nicole Hankinson participated in Bonnie’s Third Grade Cabbage Program.
Hankinson, the daughter of Glen and Debbie Hankinson of Williamstown, grew a cabbage that weighed 16 pounds, 6 ounces.
She’s hoping the large cabbage will earn her a $1,000 scholarship from Bonnie Plants, a plant company from Union Springs, Ala.
Bonnie Plants provided all third grade students a free cabbage plant. A contest winner will be chosen from each state and given a $1,000 savings bond. The state winner will be selected by a random drawing.
