Everhart Museum in Scranton holds essay contest for culinary camp tuition
SCRANTON — The Everhart Museum is hosting an essay contest for children grades kindergarten through six interested in culinary arts.
Five winners receive full tuition scholarships for the museum’s Junior Chef: Farm to Table camp taking place July 11 through 15 as part of the Museum Adventure Week series.
The week-long camp teaches children culinary skills and educates them on the farm to table movement. Campers will develop team recipes, cultivate locally sourced food and prepare dishes for a panel of judges.
The essay contest asks for 250 words or fewer in which applicants answer two questions: What inspires you to cook? And why do you think growing your own food is important?
For submission forms contact Tony Grigas at [email protected] with the subject line “I love to cook.” Forms must be completed in full to enter the contest, and essays must be written on submission forms.
Digital submissions can be sent to [email protected], and physical submissions can be mailed to Junior Chef Essay Contest, C/O Everhart Museum, 1901 Mulberry St., Scranton, PA 18510.
Essays must be received no later than June 20, and scholarship recipients will be notified by phone no later than June 25. For more information, call 570-346-7186 ext. 516.
