PA Preferred® Junior Baking Cookies, Brownies And Bars

The PA Preferred™ Junior Baking Cookies-Brownies- Bars contests is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s PA Preferred™ program and coordinated by the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs. It will be held this year at the Fulton County Fair.

The goal of the PA Preferred ™ Junior Baking Contest is to encourage young people across the commonwealth to participate in Pennsylvania’s agricultural fairs by showcasing Pennsylvania grown and produced products in their contest entries.

A contest participant must be an individual amateur baker age 8 through and including 18 years old and a resident of Pennsylvania. The cookies, brownies or bars entry must include two (2) PA Preferred™ ingredients. A comprehensive list of products is available at papreferred.com.

More than 100 fairs across Pennsylvania will offer cash prizes for the best PA Preferred™ cookies, brownies or bars in the Junior Baking Contest.

Fulton County Fair’s contest is a preliminary competition that leads to the selection of the final PA Preferred ™ Junior Baking Contest Cookies, Brownies, and Bars blue ribbon winner each January at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. The first-place winner at the Farm Show will be awarded a cash grand prize of $500 for the winning PA Preferred™ Cookie, Brownie or Bar recipe.
