IEOOC launches recipe contest on Facebook, bigonions.com
by Kathleen Thomas Gaspar | May 27, 2010
Using both its web site, bigonions.com, and its Facebook site, Big Onions, the
Idaho-Eastern Oregon Onion Committee has launched a contest for recipes
to be listed in a new cookbook being developed by the committee's
marketing director, Sherise Jones.
On the Facebook site, visitors are provided a link to the committee's
bigonion.com site, where a contest form is posted. The first 100 responses
will be given a free onion "Beanie Baby."
According to Ms. Jones, all recipe submissions will be considered for
publication in the Big Onion Facebook Fans section of the cookbook, and the
winners of the contest will be awarded cash prizes in the amounts of $100
for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place.
The web site advises contest participants that inclusion in the cookbook will
be based on the number of recipes received, and each submission must be
original. Also, each recipe must be accompanied by a release for use in print
and social media.
The deadline for recipes is June 13, and only the first 100 entries will be
given the free "Beanie Baby."
