(Nacogdoches) The Nacogdoches Public Library announces the date for the annual Kids & Teens Cooking Contest. This year’s contest, for children ages 5-17 years, will be held on Saturday, November 4th.
“For the past couple of years, the library has had several cooking and gardening programs for children and adults. This fall’s schedule features the cooking contest, the cookbook club for adults and the School Gardening Cooking Class later in the month. The library also has a free seed library so kids and families can learn to grown their own vegetables and flowers. With all these programs, we hope to foster a sense of community and fun. We also want to challenge people to expand their horizons by learning new skills,” said Mercedes Franks, Library Director.
The deadline to enter the contest is Friday, November 3rd at 5:30 pm. Rules and entry forms are available at the public library. This year, contestants can also register online at www.ci.nacogdoches.tx.us/library. Items are to be prepared at home and brought to the library by 11:00 am on November 4th. Winners will be announced at 12:00 pm. For more information about the contest or other library programs, please call 559-2970.
