Search is on for the best sandwich
15 August 2013
There is still time for tuckshops to put their best filling forward for the 2013 Smart Choices Tuckshop Sandwich Designer of the Year competition.
Open to all state and non-state school tuckshop workers, both convenors and volunteers, the competition for the best school sanger closes on 30 August 2013.
Sandwiches must be of the designers' own creation, and will be judged on nutritional value, practicality for the tuckshop, creativity, presentation and, for the state final only, taste and appeal to students.
One finalist from each Education Queensland region will be chosen to compete in the state final. The state finalists will make their sandwich at the Smart Choices masterclass being held at the Royal International Convention Centre, Bowen Hills, in Brisbane on 21 October.
Regional winners will have their travel and accommodation funded if required to attend the Smart Choices masterclass.
To enter, the sandwich recipe and one photograph should be emailed to SmartChoices.Applications@dete.qld.gov.au. The email should include entrant's name, school, education region if known and contact details.
Eligible sandwiches may be made up of any form of bread with a filling, assembled cold. This may include traditional wedge sandwiches, filled rolls and wraps. It does not include burgers, toasted sandwiches or fillings assembled and consumed hot.
The winner of the state final will receive a trophy and $250 for the purchase of kitchen appliances for their school tuckshop.
Regional winners will also receive trophies, to be presented by their local MP on Tuckshop Day, Friday 1 November.
