DISCOVER IT. EXPLORE IT.

 

 

MAKE IT. EAT IT. TELL US ABOUT IT!


 

Our DIY Digital 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 Green Ribbon Schools, DooF and ZeBot's Kitchen to host an exciting new project for culinarily curious kids, in conjunction with ZeKids' Food Blogging Program.


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

 

Here's all you need to do:

1. Come up with a cool idea for cooking, growing or just learning about something you'd normally buy in a store or eat in your favorite restaurant.

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

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

 

Check out our event coverage, recipes & cool videos by clicking here!


 For examples of last year's kids' DIY food blogs, just click here!

 

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

*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.

Spring deadline to win prizes is Friday, May 30th, 2014.

 

We'll be launching our 2014-15 IACP Kids Digital Kitchen projects on August 1, 2014!

 FOOD BLOG & VIDEO GUIDELINES


 

FOR INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS:

 

 Text: Try to keep the word count to 400 words, max. Of course, your blog can be much shorter -- even just a couple of sentences are great! Please make sure your blog is in either a Microsoft Word or Text-Only format.


Photos: Submit one to three great photos! If your parents don't want you to show images of your face on the internet, just take pictures of the ingredients, techniques, scenery -- or whatever else you'd like.

 

Videos: Your videos should be no more than 2 minutes long – and shorter is fine! To submit, you'll need to post them on YouTube, then send us the link in your email submission.

 

 

 

 FOR TEACHERS OR GROUP LEADERS:

 

 Text & Photos:Since you'll be uploading directly to the Green Ribbon Schools website, please 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.

 

Videos: 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!
