What an awesome opportunity. My husband is a HUGE football fan and would love to win a trip to the Rose Bowl. The toughest part is who to take? Having a family of 5 that gives us one extra person. Don’t think that will stop me from entering. I would love to say I need a little vacation and some me time but truthfully it would be nice to have a little vacation with hubby and the kids. It has been a while since we took a family vacation. Entering to win is pretty easy even if you are a novice in the kitchen like myself. First here are the details about the Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest
RECIPE CONTEST INSTRUCTIONS
1. Submit your information so that we can contact you if you win.
2. Share your recipe in full with ingredients and instructions, then upload your avocado recipe photo.
3. Once submitted, check back after November 28, 2011 to see if you are selected as one of the thirty (30) finalists to share your recipe with friends and have them vote for you. The finalist with the highest votes is the winner!
You will need a Facebook account to enter. When you click on the Enter Contest tab you must login with your Facebook account. It also mentions that only users who “like” Hass Avacados are eligible to enter. Once this step is out of the way you will fill out basic information such as name, email, age, etc. You will then move to the next step in which you will fill in the information about your recipe including title, description, ingredients, etc. You will also upload an image. I encourage you to read the official rules regarding ingredients you must use like a Hass Avocado, and information you will need to know like “do use brand names in your ingredient list”.
Overall the process is very simple and user friendly. You can check out some of the competition here : Hass Avocado Recipe Contestants. You have until November 4th to enter. From their the judges will select 30 finalist. There will be a voting contest between the 30 and the winner will receive:
