    Submittal info
    District 4th - 6th grade students were invited to submit recipes for their favorite after-school snacks. The recipes, which had to be submitted by Friday, February 23, did not have to be original. They could be family recipes or from cookbooks, the Internet, etc. Recipe submittal forms are available by clicking here.

    Student finalists were selected from the submitted recipes and will be invited to prepare their creations at Glacier Peak High School. Families, teachers and principals will be invited to taste these culinary masterpieces at a Friday, April 27, event. A panel of judges will select the grand prize winners. Past award categories have included:

    • Health-conscious foods
    • Simple, kid-friendly preparation
    • Fun food
    • Judge’s choice

    All finalists will receive a framed certificate, a recipe book of all of the finalists’ recipes, an apron/chef’s coat, as well as a medal. Grand prize winners will receive an additional award.

In addition, students will be supervised by kitchen staff during the food production to help ensure that safe food practices are followed and that no one gets hurt. For more information, call the Food Service Dept. at 360-563-7298.
