Think you have a recipe that can win over the hearts and stomachs of students at Illinois State? Campus Dining invites all alumni and current students, faculty, and staff to submit their favorite dish into the Third Annual Redbird Recipe Contest.

Recipes can be submitted online at from September 1 through 20. Campus Dining’s culinary team will select finalists in two categories: main/side dish and sweet/dessert. The finalist recipes will be featured in the three dining centers during Homecoming.

Finalists will be selected based on the uniqueness of the dish, its perceived appeal to the campus community, and its ability to be produced in large quantities. Students and dining center guests will vote for their favorite in each category, with the winning recipe added to the spring menu rotations. The winners will receive a personalized token commemorating their win.
