More than 900 U.S. schools are competing for the chance to win an organic garden or an organic-only vending machine.
The contest, part of the Greenfield, Mass.-based Organic Trade Associationâs âOrganic. Itâs Worth it in Schoolsâ campaign, runs through May 1, according to an association news release.
Students, teachers, parents and others have until May 1 to vote online for their school.
The school with the most votes will get either a garden complete with seeds, soil and expert gardening support; or a vending machine stocked with organic fruit, milk, cheese, yogurt and other items.
When people vote, at www.OrganicItsWorthIt.org/school-newsletter, theyâre put on a mailing list to receive an electronic newsletter devoted to organic food.
