Welcome to International Youth Food Culture Contest, an annual writing and art contest for middle and high school students with a focus on food and food cultures. The contest aims at providing a platform for students around the world to celebrate their passion in food and culinary arts, share their experiences about food in the context of their cultures, voice their opinions on the impact of food in today’s fast changing world, and communicate their thoughts for a healthier food environment.


In the past four years' contests, we received entries from many countries in North America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. We are truly grateful that the contest has brought joy, pride, and inspiration to so many young food lovers around the world. For everyone who participated, thank you for your wonderful entry and keep celebrating food!
