November 18, we pick 15 finalists: The SparkPeople team will make each of the finalist recipes for a company-wide taste test. We'll judge the recipes on taste, appearance, overall healthfulness, and ease of preparation. At the end of the judging period, we'll tally up the points to pick a grand prize winner.
On December 2, we announce the winner: We'll send the grand prize winner a check for $5,000 and we'll send the other $5,000 to the hunger-relief charity of the winner's choice.
