The Ornamental Horticulture students of the Sunny Hills High School Agriculture Department placed No. 1 out of three teams in the Los Angeles Fair Landscape Competition on Aug. 31. The LA Fair Landscape Competition is a contest in which competitors must create a landscape on a provided plot of land in accordance to the theme given, which was Route 66 this year.
Each team competing was given a specific theme, and the Sunny Hills team was assigned the theme Cadillac Ranch. Seniors Faith Uyeno, Katelyn Black, Jessica Calhoun and Sarah Mills led a team of six students worked for over a week to create a realistic landscape with various materials, such as tires, ply wooden frames, chicken wire, paper mache, standard house paint and spray paint.
