WGN is having a garden contest
I was just watching the 9pm news and saw they are having a gardening contest. There is a weekly winner and the winner gets "Weekly prize - one 14 carat white gold jeweled flower"
You can see the rules at the link.
They also said something about the Trib having a contest but I didn't watch long enough to see what that was about.
