JUNIOR COOK CONTEST LIST

Welcome, Junior Cooks! This page lists contests that persons under 18 years old may be able to enter. Some of them are recipe contests, and others want an essay or a video. Students who are 18 will find some contests here that they may enter, but can also enter some contests on the DEADLINE page.

Each contest has different age requirements for entering the contest, so check the "ELIGIBILITY" line of the summary to see if you can enter that one. Some contests you must enter together with an adult.

If there is no mention of age limitations in the rules of a contest we will list them on this page. If we find out from the sponsors that they want adults only, the contest will be removed.
