ATASCOCITA, Texas -- An elementary school student from Texas is a champion after winning big in a national cabbage growing program.
Sophia Schnaibli was given a baby cabbage seedling in Mrs. Faria's 3rd grade class at Groves Elementary School last year as part of the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program.
The now-4th-grader managed to grow the seedling into a 7.5-pound cabbage.
The Humble Independent School District shared a photo of Sophia smiling with the massive cabbage.
She was chosen as the program's 2022 Texas State winner, and as part of her victory, she was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
"Here, at Bonnie Plants, we know it takes commitment and attention to plant, care for and to grow a cabbage to the size and quality you were able to achieve," Savannah Burgess of Bonnie Plants wrote in the letter. "Sophia, you did a great job!"
