Ballard High botany class wins awards at competition

Science Teacher India Carlson sent us the following about her botany class, which won two awards:

"Ballard High School Botany Class students won two awards in the student competition at the NW flower and garden show. We won "Best Overall Design" and "Best Recycled Item." The student competition is sponsored by the ReStore and centers on using recycled items in a student designed and built garden. We had generous donations from Miller Paint, Swanson’s Nursery, Limback Lumber, and the ReStore so a big shout out to the local business for helping Ballard. Our theme was based on Jurassic Park complete with a dinosaur made of car parts."

Thanks India!
