Creative cooks can come up with any type of dish, ranging from main dishes to dessert, and, of course, any and all variations on pancakes. The recipe must include some type of pancake mix as a main ingredient, and it must be an original creation.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place, with entries judged on taste, originality and creativity, use of product and appetite appeal.
First prize is $300 in cash and merchandise. Second prize is $100 in cash and merchandise and third prize is $50 in cash and merchandise.
Those interested in entering may pick up entry forms at the Liberal Convention and Tourism Bureau, One Yellow Brick Road. Contestants will be given a complete copy of the rules when they pick up an entry form. Entry forms and rules may also be downloaded at www.pancakeday.net.
Completed entry forms must be returned to the Liberal Convention and Tourism Bureau by 5 p. m., Friday. Entrants will prepare their dishes and bring them to the Knights of Columbus Hall Saturday morning, Feb. 13.
The public is invited to attend and to sample the dishes after winners are announced.
