An Humble ISD elementary student 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!

Humble ISD 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!”
