Registration Deadline: Sunday, April 12, 2020

Overview – This is an individual contest, not a team event like other cooking challenges!
In this virtual contest, pre-registered youth will receive instruction via Zoom at the published start time. No actual cooking will occur, but youth will be assigned a cut of beef, list of available pantry items, and list of available pieces of kitchen equipment. Everyone will receive their “mystery ingredients” information at the same time. Contestants will then have one hour to plan a five-minute presentation, including how they would prepare the beef, ingredients they would use, etc. At the end of the one-hour time frame, all contestants will connect via internet (or call in with telephone) to their unique Zoom meeting and give their presentation, which will be recorded. Recorded presentations will be judged, and awards will be announced online at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 22nd.

The contest will be based on 4-H Food Challenge and Youth Beef Challenge, both of which had to be canceled due to COVID-19 corona virus restrictions. The contest is open to youth who were on food challenge teams as well as individuals who want to try something new! This is an individual event, not a team event.
