Celebrate the flavors and traditions of the world in KEET-TV’s “My Family, My Flavors” recipe contest.

KEET is looking for recipes passed down from generation to generation from around the globe. KEET is inviting high school and college students ages 14 to 25 to submit recipes that reflect their traditional heritage and culture. This contest is based on the PBS Show “No Passport Required,” where Chef Marcus Samuelsson takes viewers “on an inspiring journey across the U.S. to explore and celebrate the wide-ranging diversity of immigrant traditions and cuisine woven into American food and culture.”

KEET wants to hear the story behind each submitted recipe, so send details along with a photo of the completed dish. If a family’s favorite recipe is originally from a newspaper or cookbook, be sure to include that information in the submission as well.

The judges will select the top three recipe/story combinations. Winners will present their dishes on KEET-TV as part of a “My Family, My Flavors” television special to be recorded at the studio and aired as a special on KEET-TV. The three winners will receive a $100 grocery gift card and will participate in a panel discussion about their dishes and traditions at a public event. All of the submitted recipe entries will go into an online cookbook. Students ages 14 to 17 must have their parents fill out the declaration of compliance form. All submissions are due by Wednesday at midnight. For more information, go to
