Georgia Southern University’s Cookie Recipe Contest is open for submissions
Georgia Southern invites students to be a part of University history by submitting their original recipe for the Cookie Recipe Contest now through Feb. 28. The winning recipe will become the official cookie of Georgia Southern.
This is the chance of a lifetime for bakers, cookie lovers and anyone who has the skills and determination to whip up a next-level cookie recipe. Current students can submit original, unpublished recipes with no more than 10 ingredients and 30-minute prep time.
Chef and Director of Culinary Operations Michael Price, along with a team of judges will select the winning cookie recipe based on the criteria of taste, appearance, creativity and crowd appeal. Four finalists will each receive a $150 gift certificate to the University Store, an award presented at the grand announcement and a featured article in University media.
The grand prize includes a $500 gift certificate to the University Store, an award presented at the grand announcement and a featured article in University media. The winning cookie will also be served at all official University events.
“I am very excited to be a part of something that will become a new campus tradition,” said Price. “We have a lot of eager ‘True Blue’ students who would love to contribute to this contest. I think it’s a great opportunity for them to showcase their passion for Georgia Southern.”
