It’s a contest! Alex, Soph and I love a good competition and thinking up creative new recipes, so this one is going to be fun for us.
The contest I’m talking about is The 8th Annual Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest. Another reason I’m excited about this contest is that, just like Two Kids Cooking, it encourages families to spend time together in the kitchen being creative and having fun cooking. Plus, kids ages 6 to 12 have the opportunity to win a $25,000 college scholarship fund and runners-up will each receive a $2,500 scholarship fund!
Moms can get involved too with the ‘Jif Moms Voice Their Choice Contest,’ by exercising their creativity for a chance to judge. All you have to do is submit a 250 word or less essay answering the question, "How do you make the best choices for your family?" The winner gets a seat at the judging table for the final live judging even in New York City.
So everyone, get on your creative thinking caps and get in the kitchen. Alex, Soph and I have our recipe ideas down and will be submitting soon, but we love a good competition, so get those recipes in! 😀
