Our competition for a special scholarship of up to 2000 EUR is now open!
You can submit your application not later than February 28, 2017.
The theme of the competition is 'How to get kids eat more vegetables?'. We expect you to present a recipe for a kids meal with vegetables and a short essay to describe further the different ways to include fruits and vegetables in the kids menu.
The contest is organized in two parts - presenting a recipe and writing an essay.
Part I – The Recipe – forms 50% of your grade
The recipe must be presented in a way that clearly shows your own input and personal contribution. It is up to you to decide, if you want to make a video, prepare a presentation, take pictures of the development steps or find other creative ways to present your recipe as detailed as possible.
The Recipe will be graded as follows: Theme (10%), Presentation/Media (30%), Recipe/Techniques (10%), Enthusiasm/Motivation (30%) and Originality (20%).
Just as a hint, we have experienced that videos can be really influential and the more visuals your application has, the more interesting it becomes.
Part II – The Essay – forms 50% of your grade
The essay should be on the following topic "How to get kids eat more vegetables?”
You should further describe your reasons and motivation to choose the specific recipe, and discuss the various ways to include more fresh and healthy food in the kid`s menu.
The better you explain your motivation and arguments and show your passion, the closer you will be to winning the scholarship contest. All essays must be written in English, as well as the recipes.
The essay should be up to 700 words and not shorter than 350 words.
The essay will be graded as follow: Topic/ Interpretation of the given topic (10%), Enthusiasm/Motivation (20%), Originality (20%) and Writing skills (50%).
To be fair, we will give you 50% for the first part and 50% for the second part. This way, no matter if you are more into writing, or more into cooking and presenting your masterpiece, you still have equal chances to get to the top.
Please, send your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org, if your files are too big, feel free to use any file transfer service convenient to you (for example - dropbox, google drive, wetransfer.com, youtube.com (just for your video), etc. ).
Deadline for sending your submission is February 28, 2017 and the result will be announced with the opening of the new semester on March 13, 2017. Please make sure to submit your application for the Culinary Arts degree program as well, otherwise you risk missing the deadline for enrollment and respectively the chance to take advantage of the scholarship, as it can be granted to accepted students only.

Good luck and cook your heart out!
