Win a Greenhouse for Your School

Washington State Potatoes is offering kids a chance to win a greenhouse for their school. Entries are due by 1/24/11 and it is open to kids in Puget Sound and Eastern Washington. Check out the website for all the details, but the basics are the child needs to tell them about their school, say what they would do with a greenhouse, and create a healthy potato recipe.

If you're wondering about how healthy the potato is, you should check out the recent experiment conducted by the Director of the WA StateRusset potato with sprouts. Sliced (left) and ...Image via Wikipedia Potato Commission to eat only potatoes for 60 days. Apparently, the potato had been getting a bad rap in the vegetable world so he chose a dramatic way to demonstrate that potatoes can be a great source of nutrition after some federal low-income assistance programs announced that potatoes were no longer allowed to be purchased through the program. Seems some people couldn't see past the french fries to the baked potatoes.
