Photo Contests

Focus on Texas: Rust and Decay
Old chains, buckets, car parts, machinery and more; the objects that once played a part in our lives are now silent reminders of our past. For September, show us the beauty of things discarded and taken over by rust or decay.
Focus on Texas: Fillin’ Stations
Fill ’er up and away we go! From mom and pop stop-n-shops to roadside gas-n-gos, the days of the full-service experience seem to be long gone. For October, we want to see the general stores, service stations and auto shops that get you on your way.
Focus on Texas: Funny Signs
We’ve all seen those signs that make us shout “Honey, stop. We’ve GOT to go back!” For November, let’s see those restaurant, roadside, neon, wooden, metal, billboard, bus bench and hand-painted signs of the times.
Focus on Texas: Bridges
Bridges, a sort of living history, link us to our past. Bridges reach across time and space to connect territories and unite us all. For December, bridge the gap by showing off the beloved structures in your neck of the woods.

Recipe Contests

Ooey, gooey, savory and even sweet, cheese is an ingredient that spans a range of recipes. Its versatility is perfect for fall events and holiday celebrations. Your signature recipe could earn you a cool $500 if it’s our favorite. The winner also receives a Texas Co-op Power apron. Our picks will run in the October issue.
Single or double crust, a la mode or unadorned, everyone looks forward to a dessert table laden with pies. Whether your signature recipe is for a fruit pie, quiche or special torte, please tell us more. This month’s winner will receive $500 and a Texas Co-op Power apron, and we’ll run our favorites in the November issue.

Homemade gifts speak volumes, and what better way to gift than with something from your kitchen? From jams to miniature cakes to soup mixes, let us know your favorite recipes for gifting. We’ll award our favorite $500 and a Texas Co-op Power apron, and the best entries will be featured in the December issue.
