the way i started was through my high school, that's probly not an option for you, so the other way i started was through the state fair. I live in nebraska but maybe check your state fair.

Send a message via MSN to kitchenelf
Get on Google and start searching for cooking contests, either in your area or just in general. That's how I would start, if it were me searching.

Both Southern Living and Taste of Home magazines offer cooking contests. You might want to check out their websites for information.

If anyone knows of any contests, please post them, because I would also love to enter any of them possible...The only bad thing is that since I'm 14, I'm not exactly able to do to many of the cool contests. If you know of any please post them. I would also like to know.
