NEW IN 2022:
Teaching Kitchen Recipe and Participant Life-Impact Videos

Awards will be given for Best Video in each of the following categories

To help provide additional resources for conference attendees and showcase the impact that teaching kitchen programs can have on individuals, families or communities, we are inviting registrants to submit short videos of
(1) recipe demonstrations; and (2) personalized stories about the impact teaching kitchens have had on participant(s).

Criteria for Recipe Demonstration Videos:

  • Video must not exceed 5 minutes in length.
  • Recipe must be included along with a brief description (<100 words) as to why this teaching kitchen recipe has been well received.
  • Recipe should be less than $5 per serving, delicious, easy to make and consistent with the TKC recipe guiding principles.
  • Special call out for dishes that highlight diverse food heritages.

Criteria for Impact Videos:

The goal of these videos is to share inspirational stories of success, as these are commonly only anecdotal.

  • Videos must not exceed 3 minutes in length.
  • Stories should describe the impact participating in a teaching kitchen program has on a particular person or family/community.
  • Videos should include the name of the teaching kitchen/institution.
  • Credits for individuals assisting in the production of the video may be included and will not count towards the video length.
