Deadline Approaching for CCE Youth Pumpkin Contest Registration


It may be summer but the deadline to take part in Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County’s youth pumpkin contest is quickly approaching.

Anyone under 18 has until June 30 to register for the contest to see who can grow the biggest pumpkin in the county.

Winners will be selected for the heaviest pumpkin and widest circumference.

Weigh-in will be at the group’s Halloween event at the Ward O’Hara Ag Museum on October 19.

Registration for the contest costs $5.00 for 4-H members and $10.00 for nonmembers. The fee includes five Big Moose variety seeds which is the only variety able to be grown for the competition.

Additional information, including how to register, can be found at ccecayuga.org.
