There are a few different ways to get involved in the 2021 Cook-off for the Coast!
Submit a Recipe
Submit your recipe highlighting the bounty of Southern Louisiana. Recipes will be judged in four categories: Swim, Fly, Crawl and Student. (Sorry, no professional cooks allowed!) Winners will receive custom trophies by local metal artist Luis Colmenares as well as all-important bragging rights. In addition, all entries will be featured in the Coastal Community Cookbook.
Be sure to check out the complete contest rules. If you have any additional questions, including any issues with your submission, please direct them to Samanatha Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions are due February 19th.
Submit your two-dimensional work of art celebrating our coast. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: ages 12 and under, 13-17, and 18 and up. The winning entry in each category will receive a $100 Visa gift card to be used at the local restaurant of your choice and be featured in the promotion for the 2022 Cook-off for the Coast. In addition, all entries will be featured on the cook-off website.
Be sure to check out the complete contest rules. If you have any additional questions, including any issues with your submission, please direct them to Samantha Carter at email@example.com. All submissions are due February 19th.
