Willie & the Beanstalk

Willie and the Beanstalk is a soybean competition for Kansas K-12 students to encourage interest in the field and increase their knowledge of soybean development. Students who enter the competition will work to see who can grow the largest soybean plant. The contest can prove to be a valuable teaching tool as it allows students to plant their own soybean, then watch it grow and document the progress the plant has made.

The 2022 Willie and the Beanstalk competition will be held as part of the 2022 Spring University Open house.

Be part of the contest to grow the biggest soybean plant in 40 days!
