The competition is run by community group Bonnie Blantyre in partnership with the Blantyre Community Council provides pupils with a sunflower growing kit that includes a small pot, compost, two sunflower seeds and growing instructions.
First, second and third prizes will be given out at each of the five local schools taking part in the competition.
