If you were waiting until the last minute to register for the Hopkins County Dairy Festival Recipe contest, you waited too long. Only five individuals entered recipes in the Dairy Recipe contest, so it has been cancelled. This is the second year for cancellation of the contest according to Johana Hicks, with the Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Office. Once again the cancellation was due to the low number of entries. Hicks had hoped the contest would recover this year due to the fact that several had commented on social media their regret that the contest was cancelled last year.
The deadline for submitting the written entry for the 2015 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Recipe contest was Monday, June 15, no later than 5:00 p.m. The event had been set for the afternoon of Saturday, June 20, at Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Office
The contest was cancelled last year due to a low number of entries. Numerous comments were made on social media about how sad it was that the event was cancelled. Hicks thanked everyone who helped promote the event.
