If I had to guess, I’d say that everyone who reads this here little blog would like the opportunity to split $10,000 between themselves and a charity that shares food with the less fortunate. Think of how many meals $5K can buy for the hungry mouths in your community! Think of how baller the holiday gifts you give this year would be if an extra $5K was helping to cushion the purchases!
I love the idea of a contest that rewards the entrant AND does some good for the universe, too. My friends at SparkPeople.com contacted me about an AWESOME recipe contest they are hosting on the recently re-launched SparkRecipes.com. [Remember when I recently shared about my love of SparkPeople and SparkRecipes a few weeks ago? If not, check out this post for more details: A New Cookbook for Your Library ]
I’m so thrilled to be able to share the details here on THS for you to have the opportunity to enter to win, too!
As you probably picked up from the spoiler alert above, the grand prize is $10,000, split between you and a hunger-relief charity in your community. The contest is a slow-cooker recipe contest. Check your blogs for past crockpot recipes, or let the contest inspire you to create a new recipe! Even if you’re not a “food blogger” I encourage you to give the contest a try. I don’t consider myself a food blog in ANY regard, and I’m proof that you can win a blogger recipe contest no matter WHAT you blog about.
Once you have your recipe ready, you only need to enter the recipe on SparkRecipes.com, click the checkbox at the bottom of the recipe entry page to enter the contest, and then share your recipe link with your friends, family, co-workers, and followers, encouraging them to vote daily. Each time your recipe is shared, liked, tweeted or +1′d on Google, it counts as a vote—and popular vote is a part of the judging process.
Submissions close on November 6th, so let’s get cooking, friends! I’m taking the challenge to create a new recipe to share with you soon; don’t you want to join in the fun? Let me know if you decide to enter your recipe at SparkRecipes.com. I’d love to test out your recipe and support you in the contest! Oh, and add your recipe to our new Crockpot Recipes of Awesome Pinterest board!
