Cedar Crest Ice Cream of Cedarburg and the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation present a contest in which the 1600 Wisconsin-based 4-H groups may compete for a $300 cash prize and an ice cream party for club members.
The winning flavor will be produced and distributed by Cedar Crest Ice Cream Company during June dairy month next year.
The Centennial 4-H Featured Flavor will be available in 2014 in three-gallon tubs for scooping. The Centennial 4-H Featured Flavor will be promoted on Cedar Crest's Facebook page.
According to Kristi Thering-Tuschen, executive director of Development for the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, the "Create and Name the Centennial Ice Cream Flavor" contest is a superb opportunity for participating 4-H youth to understand how diplomacy and democratic principles can be used to determine which flavor is the most popular or which product name to advance, and get hands-on experience developing a new ice cream product that will be on store shelves in 2014 under Cedar Crest's label."
Thering-Tuschen credited Kay Schmit, marketing manager at Cedar Crest Ice Cream, for the creative idea.
Timely submitted entries will be judged by a panel of judges chosen by Cedar Crest's staff.
Official ice-cream contest entry forms are found on Cedar Crest Ice Cream Company's website: www.cedarcresticecream.com
and the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation's website: http://wis4hfoundation.org.
