A team of Kishwaukee College (Malta, Ill.) horticulture students competed in the 4th Annual Green Industry Challenge held at Joliet Junior College and placed in several categories, including two first-place finishes. Eight teams from horticulture programs at two-and four-year institutions participated in the challenge, which consists of competitions in nine horticulture categories: paver installation, maintenance equipment operation, annual and perennial plant identification, woody plant identification, landscape plan reading and estimating, landscape design, skid steer operation, arboriculture skills and sales presentation. The teams from each college or university compete in the various areas in smaller groups or as individuals. In addition to the competition, the Green Industry Challenge offers students an opportunity to meet other horticulture students from across the state and network with green industry professionals at the career fair.
