· All entries should use local/regional products for all ingredients if available.

           All entries with 100% local ingredients will receive special recognition.

           Canned, bottled and frozen ingredients are permitted if they use local sources.

           For example: Frozen elk roast, beans canned from your garden, etc.

· You should provide a legible list of ingredients suitable for display, with local products starred.

  you could receive.

            Please keep servings small, to allow people to sample as many dishes as possible.

  entries are expected to be prepared in advance.
