(NewsUSA) – Adding fun and creativity when packing lunches
with your child this school year could put your child in the running for a $25,000 college
scholarship! Kids, with the encouragement of their parents, have reinvented the classic peanut
butter sandwich using their own imagination to create Caramel Apple Turtle Treats, Peanutti Paninis
and Rocking Rainbows. These recipes have helped to excite their everyday lunch and at the same time
have helped them to earn scholarship money for college.
The makers of Jif® are now accepting entries for the 6th Annual Jif Most Creative
Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest™ from now until November 15, 2007. The grand prize winner will
receive a $25,000 scholarship fund, each of four runners-up will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship
fund, and each finalist will receive a Jif gift basket.
The Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest™ is intended to foster
creativity and encourage parents and children to spend time together in the kitchen. Moms have
trusted Jif for decades to be a part of their children's lunch. Over the past five years, thousands
of kid chefs from across the country, with their mom's help, have invented peanut butter
sandwiches using Jif peanut butter and their own creativity.
The winner of last year's most creative peanut butter sandwich was inspired by a child's love
of sushi. Twelve-year-old Alexandra Yoder of Fort Wayne, Indiana, created "Peanut Butter Rolls -;
Sushi Style," which consisted of Jif Creamy peanut butter, strawberry cream cheese and fruit rolled
in a crepe, cut and served "sushi style."
The Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest™ is open to children ages 6 to 12.
