A cookie writing challenge
Welcome to the Cookie Challenge!
Who doesn't love cookies?? I've never met one single person the 45 years I've been living who said, 'YUCK I hate any and ALL cookies!" Just about everyone I know has at least one favorite cookie. What's yours?
For this challenge, I want you to delve deep and explore the origins of your favorite cookie. Where did it come from? What's its story? When and how did it come into YOUR life?
Now, don't just give me a dry essay that reports facts of what you find. Yes, I want you to include 3 facts about your cookie of choice. I do want you to cite at least one source you use to get your facts. No, I don't care what style you use, just so long as you provide the information. Back up your facts with proof.
Your challenge is to do this in a Story or Poem format!! NOT a typical essay. Creativity and presenting solid facts are what will get the most points for this challenge, but the presentation, following ALL the above guidelines, and of course technical skills will all count as well.
Winners what will the winners get?? Well, they will get two merit badges..one will be the cooking badge and the other will be a surprise! Winners will also get an award icon placed on their winning entries, and THEY can CHOOSE the color! That's a 30k total prize package.
Deadline. Ok, I know lots of people are hard at work creating their entries for all the amazing contests currently kicked off...so, How about I give you until the end of the month? Sept. 30th to turn in your entries? That should give you time to look up some facts and bake up your stories or poems and still give you time to work on other things as well.
EVERY PERSON who submits a qualifying entry by the deadline will receive this coffee badge:
