Some elementary students have "grown" their own success. As you'll see in our Never Stop Learning, it's earning them some cash.
Fifth grade students in Jennifer Grafton's class at Haw Creek Elementary are budding gardeners.
They have won 21 awards at this year's Mountain State Fair for their grasses, herbs, and flowers submitted in the youth division.
Growing shrubs and trees is nothing new to these students.
They have even helped surrounding schools in Buncombe and Asheville to plant and nurture flowers.
For all their hard work the students were not only recognized with almost 2-dozen awards, but also took home $144 in prize money.
