The students at CPAVTS were still excited to compete at the 2021 Pennsylvania Farm Show even if it was a virtual show this year, hosted from January 9-16.  Students were able to complete their exhibits and submit photographs of the completed work since the show was virtual, which means students were able to keep and maintain their completed projects.  Students were still expected to follow entry requirements regarding creative design, theme, quality, and meet all the Agricultural Education Exhibit qualifications. 

Cumberland Perry AVTS had 28 of its Horticulture and Landscaping students submit entries for the 2021 PA Farm Show.  CPAVTS students’ showcased the usual items such as poinsettias, bud vases, Holiday wreaths, centerpieces, succulent arrangements, herbs, bulb growing, and the favorite fairy garden.  New for the 2021 show was creating a poster on a horticulture topic which one student showcased “How to take care of Plants”.  There was also a new category that featured dried arrangements, PA product basket, advertisement for a business, and a class fave of the aquarium terrariums. 

Photo entry submission for the 20+ categories in the Horticulture and Landscape Exhibit deadline was December 11, 2020.  Local business professionals in Floral and Landscape Design judged the student entries.  Winners should be announced at the end of the PA Farm Show.  Good luck to all the students who participated in this annual, but slightly different, event for this year.
