MAKE IT. EAT IT. TELL US ABOUT IT!


The Digital DIY Kitchen is a place where magic happens every day –

and kids are the ones who make it happen!


IACP Kids-in-the-Kitchen has teamed up with DooF ('food' backwards), Green Ribbon Schools and the brand-new ZeBot's Kitchen to host an exciting project for creative kids ages 5-18, inspired by the DooF Kids' Food Blogging Program.


It's fun, easy – and there are lots of great prizes every month*!   

 

Here's all you need to do:

1. Choose a food you'd normally buy in a store or order in a restaurant, then try to make it yourself.

2. Tell us about your kitchen adventure (in words, photos and/or video).

3. Share the fun with other kids here on the Green Ribbon Schools website!


  For updates and featured photos, please check out the project's Facebook page.

 

Questions about the project? Please contact Laura Martin Bacon at kidsfoodblog@gmail.com 

 

For PROJECT GUIDELINES and instructions on HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK, scroll down.

 

*Prize winners will be chosen at random -- every kid who enters has a chance to win! Winners will be notified via the email address used for registration.

We'll also be featuring a few of our most distinguished entries on the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) website, where kids will get feedback from professional food writers, photographers, stylists and TV folks!

NEXT PROJECT DEADLINE TO WIN PRIZES: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th, 2013.

PROJECT GUIDELINES

 READY, SET...COOK!

 

To get started, think of a fun food or drink that most people would assume comes from a store or is served in a restaurant. You'll find project ideas at foodbackwards.com (search for #IACPKIKDIY) – or make up one of your own. When it comes to creating a culinary masterpiece, imagination is one of the best ingredients ever!


Now comes the DIY part: do it yourself! You might be surprised to find out that just about everything tastes better when it's homemade – from your favorite sports drinks and after-school snacks to French fries, pizza, pasta, sushi and other great foods. You can even make stuff like ketchup, mustard, pickles, cheese, ice cream, yogurt – and lots more.


As you're making your food or drink, jot down a few notes. You can write them on a piece of paper or type them into a doc on your computer, phone, iPod or iPad. Or just record yourself talking, then write it down later.

 

Take some fun photos, too. You don't need to photograph everything – just choose what seems really cool, interesting or funny to you. For writing and photography tips, click here.

 

If you'd rather shoot a short video, go for it! Again, you don't need to record your project from start-to-finish – just give us the highlights (in less than two minutes).

 

Another fun option: Interview a vendor at your favorite farmers' market, an artisan food producer or other DIY expert (grandmothers are great!), then create a blog or video about your experience. Here's an example from a DooF blogger who wanted to learn how to make goat cheese.

 FOOD BLOG & VIDEO GUIDELINES

 

TEXT & PHOTOS:

For individual students:

Text: Try to keep the word count to 400 words, max. If you want to make it shorter, that's fine, too!

Photos: Submit one to four great DIY food photos – and only the ones you really love! If your parents don't want you to post images of your face on the internet, just take pictures of the ingredients, techniques or whatever else you'd like (you can include your hands as they work on your creation).

 

 For teachers:

Feel free to create a blog with as much text and as many photos as you like. You can write a group blog by the entire class—or have individual students write their own brief blogs with bylines. Kids also love taking photos of food!  For an example of a class blog, please click here.

 

VIDEOS:

Videos should be no more than 2 minutes long – and shorter is fine! Please note that the maximum size video file that can be uploaded directly onto the Green Ribbon Schools website is 20MB. If your video file is larger, please upload it to YouTube, then post the link in your project file on the GRS website. Here's an example!
