Macejewski places third in dairy contest

LITTLE ROCK — Montgomery County’s Katelyn Macejewski was a finalist in the 2020 Arkansas Farm Bureau Dairy Foods Contest held July 27.
Macejewski finished third place in the “Main Dish” category. Janna Morse of West Fork (Washington County) won the category with her Creamy Curry Cauliflower Soup recipe. Wapiti Meffored of Newton County finished second and Sarah Lamb of Howard County finished fourth.
Emma Keller of Little Rock won the “Party Ideas” category with her Skillet Bread and Artichoke Dip recipe. Runners-up in the Party Ideas competition were 14-year-old Zach Gardner of Washington County, second place, 14-year-old Anastazja Stewart of Newton county, third place and 15-year-old Hannah Riggin of Hot Spring County, fourth.
The annual contest is typically held at the state fairgrounds in Little Rock, where the contestants produce their dishes for the judges, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the contest to move to a video submission format.
Though the contestants were not able to travel to Little Rock for the final competition, the judges were hopeful that each participant was able to use this as a unique opportunity to learn other skills. 
“This is more than just a recipe contest; it is a growth opportunity for the contestants to practice gathering their thoughts and preparing for a presentation,” said Bruce Tencleve, director of the Dairy Foods Contest.
The eight finalists were selected from dairy foods contests conducted by 45 county Farm Bureau organizations. Though the contest was completed in July due to COVID-19, June is National Dairy Month and it is the 63rd year for Arkansas Farm Bureau to promote the state dairy industry through this contest.
Arkansas Farm Bureau is a private advocacy organization of almost 190,000 families throughout the state working to improve farm and rural life.
