Entries due August 1st, Winners announced August 12th

A joint contest hosted by Staatsburgh State Historic Site and Clermont State Historic Site.

Have you ever seen fake food that looked so real, you could eat it? Many historic house museums use faux (or fake) food as props, to help visitors imagine the time when the house was still a home. This July, we're inviting kids ages 6-14 to create their own fake food in "Faux Food Fight!" Create your own culinary concoctions and be as imaginative as you want! You could make something that looks super delicious or super gross! Enter your faux culinary concoction by August 1 for a chance to win a prize.

For details on how to enter please click here.

Entries will be judged on their creativity, artistic merit, and effort in composing a recipe and fake foodstuff. Our panel of expert fake foodies will announce 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in three age categories: ages 6-8, 9-11 and 12-14. Winners will receive their own chef hat and apron, a must-have for every culinary maestro! Winners will be announced on August 12, 2021.
