In celebration of the holidays and in anticipation of the New Year, the National Honey Board (NHB) will be making 2015 sweeter for three lucky Latino culinary students nationwide with the announcement of its "Sweet & Savory" Scholarship Contest. It beckons U.S. Latino culinary students to showcase their creativity by crafting an original and flavorful recipe that highlights the unique and versatile taste of honey in an eye-catching dish.
"The talent found among the next generation of food professionals is seen daily across the country, especially through today's social media," states Catherine Barry, Director of Marketing of the National Honey Board. "The goal of this contest is to spotlight the passion of Latino culinary school talent, and we're excited to see the original dishes they come up with using honey as their source of inspiration."
The "Sweet & Savory" Scholarship Contest is open to Latino students 18 years of age or older attending any accredited culinary school or program in the United States, including the three partnering schools: Los Angeles Trade & Technical School - Culinary Arts; Washburne Culinary Institute; and the Miami Culinary Institute. All participants must be of Latino descent and are only allowed to submit one (1) recipe entry. All entries must be submitted by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 16, 2015.
Three Contest finalists will be selected among all eligible entries and notified the week of January 19, 2015. They will receive an all-expense paid trip the week of January 26, 2015 (city and date TBA) where they will cook their dishes for a panel of judges including a NHB representative, culinary professionals and food critics. Each finalist is guaranteed one of three scholarships offered by the NHB including one 1st Place, $3,000 scholarship, one 2nd Place, $2,000 scholarship and one 3rd Place, $1,000 scholarship.
