IX Giant Pumpkin Contest at UEM October 30th 2014
IX GIANT PUMPKIN CONTEST October 2014- Once again the Language Center at UEM is sponsoring its GIANT PUMPKIN CONTEST. For the 9th year! Many of you planted the seeds from last year's pumpkins and spent the summer caring for your little seeds, plants, flowers and tiny pumpkins. Now we are awaiting the results. Did your plants make it through the summer? Did you water them and speak to them in English? "Come on Little Plant. Grow! " Please bring in your best Giant Pumpkins. It may not be the biggest this year, but it might be the most interesting/unusual/colorful/impressive.
Our all time champion is Mª Jose Fernandez from Admissions. Her GIANT PUMPKIN won in 2008. It weighed 53 kilos 800 grams and was grown right here in Villaviciosa.
Last year's biggest pumpkin was grown in Santa Maria del Prado, Soria and weighed in at 34 kilos 700 grams. My friends Jose Antonio and Sonia Cercadillo say they have another big one ready for this year.
This year, so far, I've received news that there are some big pumpkins coming in.
Verónica Gabaldón from Convalidations in the Health Scienes and Sports Schools

News Flash! Verónica's pumpkin is here. It's on display in the Main Hall Building B.
