I want to let you know about an event coming up. It is open to ALL home-schooled students, grades 7 - 12.
Jefferson County CattleWomen will sponsor a Jr High/Sr High Beef Cook-Off. The county is divided into regions: North/East, and South/West. The North/East includes areas such as Warrior, Corner, Gardendale, Fultondale, Pinson, Clay, Trussville, Centerpoint, Tarrant, Trussville, and Leeds. The South/West areas include McCalla, Oak Grove, Pleasant Grove, Hueytown, Irondale, Minor, Birmingham, Bessemer, Hoover, Mountain Brook, and Homewood.
Grades 7 - 9 compete in Jr High. Grades 10 - 12 compete in Sr High.
The North/East Cook-Off will be held at North Jefferson Middle School on Thursday, November 15, 2012, 9:30am - 12noon. The South/West Cook-Off will be held at Jeff State College Shelby Campus on Friday, November 16, 2012, 10am - 12 noon.
The top 5 from each division at regionals will participate in a "finals" at a central location in Jefferson County to be determined at a later date. Each participant in the regionals will receive a $10 beef gift certificate. Cash prize money will be awarded at the finals. The Overall winner from each division will represent Jefferson County at the Alabama Beef Cook-Off in Montgomery in January.
Complete cook-off rules can be obtained at http://www.bamabeef.org/.
Please feel free to pass along. I know the home schoolers would love to participate!!
