Entries will be evaluated on the basis of uniqueness of concept, overall appeal and feasibility. The winning recipe will become the sole property of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Entry deadline is April 2nd with the winner announced by April 30th. The $1,500 scholarship awarded to the winner is contingent on the student enrolling at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in a declared food science and technology major.
