Sophomore Sabrina Richert, Canterbury FFA, took top honors out of the 72 contestants from across Indiana this past September at the State Horticulture Contest held at Purdue. It was her second state title. The Horticulture Contest is a Career Development Experience hosted at Purdue and is open to any 4H or FFA member interested in horticulture science. The contest has three parts, a written exam, eight classes of specimens to judge and 100 specimens to identify. The specimens are divided into the four categories of Flowers and Indoor Plants, Fruits and Nuts, Ornamentals, and Vegetables and can be anything from a whole plant, a single leaf, a bare twig, the fruit, flower or nut of the plant.
