Commenting on their win, Lee College released a statement saying, “We want to thank the National Garden Bureau for letting students and programs like Lee College be part of your fun and educational programs. Our students are convicted felons serving sentences in the State of Texas. They come from a multitude of diverse backgrounds that often include a history of substance abuse and mental health or emotional issues. The National Garden Bureau is one of those organizations that gives students like ours the chance to participate, work together as a team to show their love and enthusiasm for the field of Horticulture. Each year we look forward to seeing what NGB’s plants of the year will be and look forward to participating in the video challenge.”

Lee College’s first video was the 2019 #YearoftheSnapdragon video which is always worth another view:  https://youtu.be/6wcJGJILQVs

Sponsored by National Garden Bureau and its members, the #YEAROFTHESUNFLOWER video contest was designed to inspire creative videos from anyone and everyone who loves sunflowers, either as a tall garden flower, a shrub garden accent, a cut flower, or as a potted/patio plant.
