Friendly competition is good for building character, and for satisfying taste buds. This year is the American Dairy Association of Indiana and Boutique Cookies are sponsoring two mouth watering competitions: Create-a-Dairy-Smoothie and BIG Cookie Decorating, to take place on August 3. Here’s what you need to know.
For the cookie decorators...
Each contestant will be provided with a plain giant cookie, but the rest is up to you! Decorate your cookie with anything edible that you can possibly think of. Icing, candies, nuts, you name it. Anything tasty that fits your design, which, by the way, will have to be themed either “Year of Popcorn” or “Indiana State Fair – Fun at Every Turn.” Register by July 12 to ensure your chance to show off your cookie decorating skills.
These kids decorated and tasted away at past cookie decorating contests!
For the smoothie creators…
Take some low fat milk and/or low fat yogurt. Choose your own special ingredients – fruits, veggies, spices, sweets, etc. Mix it all together and wa-la! You’re on your way to a blue-ribbon. Don’t let your smoothie making skills go unnoticed, register by July 12!
And there are perks!
· Participants receive 3 complimentary Indiana State Fair Tickets
· There are cash prizes for category winners: 1st - $30, 2nd - $20, 3rd - $10
· Cookie winners will get their cookies displayed in the Home & Family Arts Bldg. and smoothie makers get to enjoy their final product at the end of the contest.
