We are excited to invite New Mexico youth to participate in a fruit or vegetable recipe and artwork contest. This project is a combined effort of the Wellness Coalition, American Heart Association, the New Mexico Dietetic Association and the New Mexico 5-A-Day Coalition.
Four grade ranges are eligible to enter the contest: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 & 9-12. The guidelines and form for submission are attached. Please mail recipe and/or artwork postmarked no later than March 11, 2006. Judging by youth will be at a booth at the American Heart Association Walk on March 25, 2006. Winners will be notified after March 25th. The top recipe in each age group will be published in either a cookbook or calendar. The publication will be made available to school and clubs as a fundraiser.
We hope to have your kids participate in this statewide health promotion event!
