Nebraska Mystery Foods Event held at Raising Nebraska


Raising Nebraska is seeking Nebraska youth ages 10 to 18 to participate in the first annual Nebraska Mystery Foods Event to be held on Friday, June 12, 2015.  Youth in teams of 2 to 4 will identify careers related to nutrition and food science, learn where their food originates, specifically foods grown in Nebraska, and exhibit their knowledge and skill of preparing and presenting a dish focused on Nebraska foods. 

Teams will be divided into two divisions:
  • Division 1: 10 to 14 years old
  • Division 2: 15 – 18 years old 

The challenge: upon arrival of the event, teams will learn the five mystery ingredients that are available to be included in their appetizer.  Teams must use at least one ingredient but may use up to all five.  Teams will be judged while making the dish, the appearance of the dish, and a short presentation. 

To register: youth complete the registration form & pay $15.00 registration fee by Friday, June 5th to Raising Nebraska.  Forms and complete event information can be found at
