UNL’s Food Center to Sponsor Ice Cream Contest for High School Students

unl-icecreamThe Food Processing Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is sponsoring an ice cream contest for Nebraska’s high school sophomores and juniors.

Their challenge: Create a new ice cream flavor.

Participants may use extracts, colors, sauces and purees alone or in combination. Solid additions, such as chocolate chips, cookie pieces or nuts, are allowed but not required.

Entries will be evaluated on the basis of uniqueness of concept, overall appeal and feasibility. The winning recipe will become the sole property of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Entry deadline is April 2, with the winner announced by April 30. The $1,500 scholarship awarded to the winner is contingent on the student enrolling at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in a declared food science and technology major.
