Shali Smithson, a fourth-grader at Wooster Elementary in Greenbrier, proudly stands by her 26-pound cabbage that she grew over the spring and summer months. Bonnie Plants, headquartered in Alabama, provides all third-graders with a Mega Cabbage Plant through their annual Cabbage Program Contest. One class winner is chosen based on cabbage head size and picture and then advances to the state level. State winners’ names are put in a drawing with the overall winner being awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Smithson planted her cabbage on March 15 of this year, and it was harvested on June 4. Smithson’s parents are Roger and Michelle Smithson, and her teacher this year is Melanie Vanover. SUBMITTED PHOTO
