Community Orchard Naming Contest

The Town of Virden is holding a contest for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students to name the new orchard near Virden Junior High School. A committee will vote on a winner from each grade and an overall winner will be selected from the finalists. There will be a prize package for each grade winner and a grand prize package for the overall winner. The winning title and the name of the winner will be featured on a sign at the orchard.
