Spring brings one of the yearly events we always enjoy. Horticultural students from all over the country come together to compete, learn, and network. It’s the National Collegiate Landscape Competition, an initiative of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). This year, the event was hosted by Mississippi State University, where the event was held for the first time 40 years ago.
Over the years, more than 15,000 students have participated and 864 students have received $902,400 in scholarships at the event. Hoffman Nursery is proud to help support students and the event. Locally, we give a boost to groups from Alamance Community College, North Carolina State University, and Sandhills Community College. All three finished in the top 20 in the overall competition.
Again this year, we sponsored and coordinated the Annual & Perennial Plant Identification competition. John and Jill Hoffman attended and had a fantastic time meeting and talking with students. Take a minute to see what happened at this year’s event in the photos below. Interested in seeing more? Try the hashtag #NALPNCLC on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
