In 2023, Project 412 and the Becker County Fair thought it would be fun to partner and sponsor a food contest open to the community and held during the fair. Special thanks to Karla Lindquist and Mary Ann Jorgenson for making the contest possible!

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest was held during the Becker County Fair on July 27th, 2023, and 53 contestants entered it.

Contestants prepared chocolate chip cookies (6 on a paper plate) and a typed recipe and brought both to the Open Class Exhibit Building at the Becker County Fairgrounds on Thursday 7/27.

Grand prizes were $100 + gifts/ribbons. Winners were announced that day at 1:30 pm.
