The Hillsborough County School District is looking for participants for its Cook It Up! Student Recipe Challenge.
The contest is open to third- through eighth-graders. Participants must submit a healthy entrée recipe along with an essay explaining what makes their recipe nutritious and why it’s important to establish healthful eating habits. Deadline is Dec. 12.
Entries can be submitted on the Student Nutrition Services website, sdhc.k12.fl.us/sns. The top five finalists will be announced by Dec. 19, and will be invited to participate in a School Lunch Cook-Off.
