Garden Contest

Garden Contest “Impressed with the barrenness of plantation camps, Mr Scudder arranged for a supply of government seeds and shrubs. He then offered prizes … In a few months' time, districts without grass or trees were converted into what, comparatively speaking, might well be termed veritable beauty spots.” Then, the Star-Bulletin sponsored the contest. In January, 1917, the Honolulu Star- Bulletin began an interesting experiment in the form of a school and home garden contest in cooperation with the school department, offering a series of prizes for the best gardens on each of the islands.
