Recipe Contest Guidelines


This contest will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner.

The contest will open March 20, 2017 ending at noon on April 14, 2017.

Judges from the Family and Consumer Sciences staff within University of Delaware’s Cooperative Extension will be looking for recipes which offer delicious ways of creating fresh, healthy dishes. Judging will be based on completeness of the application (meaning all information must be included- recipe, photo, etc.), appearance,  simplicity of preparation, use of a variety of fruits and/or vegetables as ingredients and if appropriate for the recipe – lean cuts of locally-produced meat.

Each person may enter the contest only once. The contest is open to anyone who plans on attending Ag Day (we will not be shipping prizes).

Winners will be notified by April 21, 2017 so they can make arrangements to attend Ag Day on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The awards will be given out between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm on the entertainment stage. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND AG DAY TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS CONTEST!

Awards will include mixed vegetable gift baskets from UD Fresh to You, a jar of Dare to Bee Honey from our apiary and assorted items from the UDairy Creamery.

  • 1st prize value will be approximately $160 worth of items (50 lb. voucher for canning tomatoes, 20lb box of mixed vegetables, a jar of honey, Ag Day t-shirt and UDairy Creamery items)
  • 2nd prize value will be approximately $85 worth of items (20lb box of mixed vegetables, a jar of honey, Ag Day t-shirt)

The mixed vegetable gift boxes from “UD Fresh to You” will be given to the winners in the form of an IOU ticket since the vegetables will not be ready on April 29. The winner will be given a ticket and the winner’s contact information will be shared with “UD Fresh to You” staff.
