HILLEGOM, Netherlands: Six classes of schoolchildren – one class each in England , The Netherlands, Germany, Canada, France and Sweden – are the lucky winners of the 2022 Golden Flower Bulb Award. They won this award by participating in the Bulbs4Kids flower bulb project.
These six classes receive the 2022 Golden Flower Bulb Award because they and 2.250 other classes of schoolchildren in England , The Netherlands, Germany, Canada, France and Sweden signed up for the Bulbs4Kids flower bulb project. Bulbs4Kids is an international project meant to acquaint children in primary schools with flower bulbs by means of fun, hands-on activities.
To make planting flower bulbs even more exciting, the Bulbs4Kids project includes a photo and video competition. To become eligible for the 2022 Golden Flower Bulb Award, more than 1,000 of the participating classes submitted photos and videos. But there could be only one lucky winner in each of the four countries. The winning classes are:
Each of these winning classes received a 2022 Golden Flower Bulb Award trophy, a certificate for their classroom, a certificate for each child to take home, and a gift.
An increasing number of studies find the positive effects that experiencing the natural world has on health. Playing in a natural environment and experiencing plants hands-on contributes to the healthy balanced development of children. It makes them smarter, fitter and more creative. But the problem is that urbanisation has made the distance between people and the natural environment greater than ever before. That’s why Bulbs4Kids sends 2200 free Bulbs4Kids packs to primary schools. The Bulbs4Kids project allows pupils to become familiar with flower bulbs and the wonders of nature.
Bulbs4Kids is initiated by iBulb, the marketing arm of the Dutch flower bulb sector. By means of global PR and advertising campaigns, iBulb is also committed to stimulating the international use of flower bulbs, bulb flowers and bulbs in pots.
