What do you eat for lunch? The standard peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a more innovative concoction. MeetMeAtTheCorner.org, the Web site that sends kids on virtual fieldtrips, is hosting the "Everybody Eats Lunch" Recipe Contest (http://www.everybodyeatslunchcontest.com).
Open to children ages 7-12, the contest challenges children to develop their own lunch recipe, hot or cold, a unique formula or an interpretation of one seen elsewhere. Ingredients and directions on how to prepare the recipe need to be included. Entries must be postmarked by January 31, 2009 to qualify.
All eligible entries will be judged by Cricket Azima, author of "Everybody Eats Lunch." Four winners (two in the age 7-9 category and two in the age 10-12 category) will receive an autographed copy of Azima's book and a one-year subscription to Kiwi magazine. The winners will be announced in February, 2009. The winning recipes will be featured in a MeetMeAtTheCorner.org video podcast shortly thereafter.
Complete information and entry forms can be found at
Mail recipe, entry form, name, age, address, daytime phone number and e-mail address to MeetMeAtTheCorner.org "Everybody Eats Lunch" Recipe Contest, 1710 First Ave., PO Box 283, New York, NY 10128.
All submissions become the property of MeetMeAtTheCorner.org. Entries that are not among the winners may be featured in a future video podcast. One entry per person.
