Recipe Entry Form
Tips for the Competition


The main focus of this event is to promote healthy eating habits for our students. We will be selecting two students from each elementary school to participate in the competition. The winner of the competition will then go on to compete against students from other schools.

We are asking for volunteer judges to help out with our event. 

Parents, staff, family and friends are all invited to attend this event. The more support we have for the students, the better!

Deadline to receive recipes is January 20th.  The competition will take place on March 15.
