Parents, kids and two tablespoons of Jif peanut butter combined with a lot of creativity could be the ultimate recipe for success. Now through November 13, 2009, the 8th Annual Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest is accepting entries from kids ages 6 – 12, for a chance to win a $25,000 college scholarship fund. Four runners-up will each receive a $2,500 college scholarship fund.
I don’t know about your family, but this college scholarship would mean so much to our kids! Now entering its eighth year, the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest has encouraged thousands of families to spend quality time in the kitchen together and ignite a creative culinary spark in their children. Last year’s winner, Jordyn Boyer, was inspired by her Mom’s home cooking and regional influences to create her “Po’ Boy Peanut Butter Chicken Cheesesteak”. Her creative sandwich was made with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter with chicken, peppers, onions, apples and mozzarella cheese. Her entry was awarded the title of the nation’s most creative peanut butter sandwich and earned her money towards college.
With as much Jif Peanut Butter as my kids eat, I am sure we can come up with some fun recipes for new Sandwiches! Tucker is our peanut butter in the house.
Help discover a budding chef in your area and encourage your readers to instill creativity, measurement and teamwork skills in their kids by submitting a recipe to the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest.
