Montgomery County Department of Health, in collaboration with N.C. Cooperative Extension in Montgomery County and Montgomery County Partnership for Children will be hosting two summer contests starting July 11, 2021. Each contest will highlight the importance of healthy eating for all ages.

Our first contest of the summer is our (Healthy) Recipe Roundup. Anyone is eligible to participate in this contest (adults and children)! All you have to do to participate is to submit a healthy recipe each week based on the assigned theme. The contest will begin on July 11. Recipes can be submitted online or dropped off at any of the local library branches in Montgomery County. Each week, beginning July 19, two names will be randomly selected from that week’s entries who will each win a $50 grocery gift card! Please like and follow North Carolina Cooperative Extension of Montgomery County on Facebook for weekly theme announcements, drawings, and recipe demonstrations. Visit our website for a full schedule of events.

Our second contest of the summer is the Kids Coloring Contest, which will begin July 11 and run until August 7. We invite kids entering grades PreK-5th grade to submit a drawing/coloring of their favorite summer activity. The drawings could be anything from swimming, hiking, or a fun summer cookout, etc. Submissions will be divided into age categories and independently judged by a panel of local community members from each town in the county. Winners in each category will be awarded a prize pack including a $25 grocery gift card. Drawing submissions can be dropped off at your local library branch or submitted online.

At the conclusion of the summer, we will combine all recipe submissions into a digital cookbook to share free of charge with the community. Submitted artwork will be used to illustrate the cookbook.

For more information on our summer contests please reach out to the Montgomery County Department of Health at (910) 572-1393 x1228 or visit our website.
