Holy Cole Slaw! Ohio kid wins scholarship for growing 42-pound cabbage

Brandon Read of Summit County won a national contest and a $1,000 scholarship for growing a 42-pound cabbage, the Ohio Department of Agriculture announced on Tuesday.

Brandon, a student at Bath Elementary School, is the 2014 winner of the Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program, a contest for third graders to encourage young people to learn gardening.

The company, which distributes a million free cabbage plants to students and schools across the country, names a winner in each state. Each participating teacher in the state submits a class winner, with the final winner being randomly drawn by each state’s director of agriculture.
