Sunflower competition

The UQ Sunflower Competition inspires students to become the next generation of plant and agricultural scientists.

It provides interactive learning opportunities through school-based experiments and supports teachers to deliver their science curriculum in a plant-based context.

No 2023 competition

We're not hosting the Sunflower Competition in 2023.

In the meantime, we encourage you to grow your own sunflowers and conduct experiments.
