ProStart Student Camellia Brand Recipe Contest

Camellia Brand and the LRA Education Foundation have partnered on a recipe contest for 2014-2015 ProStart schools. ProStart Schools are invited to create an original recipe (starter, salad, entrée, or dessert) featuring one or more of four Camellia Brand products:

Black Beans

Red Kidney Beans

Lady Cream Peas


A first and second place recipe will be selected by judges based on taste, presentation, creativity, marketability, and successful showcase of selected Camellia Brand product. The winning school will receive a $5,000 cash award and the runner-up school will receive a $1,000 cash award, payable to the school, to be used for support of the ProStart Program.

The winning students will be celebrated at a luncheon and winning recipes will be used by Camellia on their website and through additional publicity, including social media, blogs, TV segments, radio shows, and written articles. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in demonstration opportunities, serving as brand ambassadors at Camellia-involved trade shows, events, and festivals, as well as participate in Camellia’s new product lines.
