Allison Public Library
to sponsor Tall Corn Contest
Grow Wild for $100 Prize
By Patty Hummel
Iowa, Iowa, land where the tall corn grows! The Allison Public Library is sponsoring a Tall Corn Contest as part of our Wilder Days celebration. Seed packets are available at the library from May 26-30. Plant your seeds and grow wild! Water, fertilize, weed, and sing to your corn. Use a secret compost blend or your best gardening tips and tricks.
Then, on July 17, cut your tallest stalk of corn at ground level and bring it to the Library from 2-6pm. All stalks will be measured and displayed. The First Place winner will be awarded $100 cash, many additional prizes, and ride in the Wilder Days parade. The Second Place winner will be awarded $50 cash, many additional prizes, and ride in the Wilder Days parade. Only one prize per family, please.
Thank you to Phil Barnett, Kruger Seeds DSM, (first class seed and a first class guy) for donating to this project! We are planting seeds of knowledge and growing acres of ideas at the Allison Public Library.
