The VSGP Awards recognise and celebrate the gardening achievements of students and their school communities in existing and newly established gardens.
Now in their 43nd year, the Awards have a long and proud history of bringing gardening skills and the joy of learning to school- aged children.
You don’t have to be big or beautiful to enter. The Awards are all about recognising schools that use their outdoor spaces to promote the engagement of students in practical activities which foster learning, wellbeing and community pride.
The Awards are open to all Victorian Government, Catholic and Independent schools.
There are a variety of Award categories to enter, with nursery vouchers and garden product prizes to win. Award entry presentations/videos are submitted via an online application form from this website.
An Award Presentation Ceremony is held in November at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne to celebrate winning schools’ gardening achievements and announce category, State and Kevin Heinze Perpetual Award winners.
Entries to the 2020 Awards will open on 2 March and close on 28 September at 5pm.
