High School Building Contest

Each year the show committee is determined to add new and exciting features to the home and garden show. 2016 will be the inaugural year for a contest for Industrial Arts programs in high schools in our surrounding communities. 

Outdoor Building Project

Schools will be able to showcase student’s work and earn money for the Industrial Arts program by building and bringing an outdoor play project to be auctioned off at the Home and Garden Show. Saturday, March 19 at 4PM and the proceeds from the sale will be returned to each school. Items can be picked up at the conclusion of the show on March 20.

People’s Choice Award

The projects will be on display at the Home and Garden show for visitors to vote on. The winning People’s Choice project will receive a prize of $500 for the winning school’s Industrial Arts program. Each school can rally the community and school to visit the home show and vote on their school’s project. Voting will end at the conclusion of the show.

Craftsmanship Award

A $250 award will be sponsored by Agri-City Insurance and the winner will be selected by members of the home show committee based on the construction and finish details of the pieces.

Video Contest

Each student has a chance to submit a video for a chance to win $250. The videos can be on an individual, team, or school basis and can be about the project, the school, or even a commercial for the home show. All videos will be uploaded to the Home Show You Tube channel and each participant will need to sign a release. The winner will be chosen by the home show committee based on creativity, views and likes, and encouraging people to attend the Home and Garden Show. A video can still be submitted even if no project is submitted by a school.
