GENERAL RULES OF THE CONTEST
All entrants in this Contest agree to the Recipe Submission Disclaimer. To enter the Contest, the entrant must submit a recipe using the 2015 Homegrown Recipe Contest submission form. A choice of two categories will be given for each recipe: Fruits or Vegetables. Entrants must choose ONE of the two categories in which they wish his or her recipe to be entered in. A limit of 2 recipes per category per person will be strictly enforced. Recipes must contain at least one fruit or vegetable sold on the Holland Bulb Farms website. These fruits and vegetables are: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, rhubarb, asparagus, garlic, potatoes, onions, shallots, beans, beets, broccoli, carrots, corn, cucumber, eggplant, swiss chard, kale, lettuce, melon, okra, parsnip, peas, peppers, pumpkin, radish, spinach, squash, tomatoes, watermelon, or cantaloupe. Although it is not necessary that the vegetable or fruit is the main ingredient it is highly encouraged that it is the main ingredient or has a high influence on the flavor or texture of the meal. Each recipe must be categorized into one of the two categories. Entry must: (1) include recipe name and the number of servings that the recipe yields, (2) use ingredients available in most grocery stores; (3) list ingredients with measurements; (4) include step-by-step preparation and cooking directions; (5) include entrants name, age, complete address with zip code, and telephone number with area code.

Entries will be judged separately, in accordance with the judging criteria, as defined below. Judges will consist of the entire Holland Bulb Farms staff as well as Bridget of the Bulb Blog. Proof of submission is not proof of receipt. Entries must be made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, internet domain owner, or other person or organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
SELECTION OF FINALISTS AND WINNERS
Each recipe submitted must be approved by a member of the Holland Bulb Farms' recipe selection committee. Recipes may be approved or rejected based on suitability (for example, must comply with rules and must contain an item sold on the HBF website) for the Contest at the discretion of Holland Bulb Farms. Only those recipes approved will be deemed eligible to win the Contest.
Members of the Holland Bulb Farms staff as well as Bridget of the Bulb Blog will determine a first, second, and third place winner in each of the two categories (Fruits and Vegetables). Any given participant is only allowed to win one major prize (not including the $10.00 coupon) in only one of the two categories. Recipes will be judged based on the following criteria: creativity, use of fruit or vegetable (what percentage of the recipe used the given item), ease of execution (how easy is this recipe to make by the average home cook), taste test (the top recipes will be cooked and tasted by judges to determine taste), and entry content (additional information provided as well as any photographs). Winners will then be announced on Friday, March 6th, 2015.
The third place winner in each category will receive a $25.00 shopping spree on the Holland Bulb Farms website. The second place winner in each category will receive a shopping spree to Holland Bulb Farms in the amount of $50.00. The first place/grand prize winner in each category will receive a shopping spree in the amount of $100.00 to Holland Bulb Farms. All shopping spree amounts must be used by the end of the 2015 calendar year. In addition to these first, second and third place prizes, a $10.00 coupon to be used on any Holland Bulb Farms order will be awarded to any participant submitting a recipe which is featured on the Holland Bulb Farms website or Bulb Blog.
