Explore Your Inner Pierogi

Explore Your Inner Pierogi

Last year I offered Facebook fans of BFA an opportunity to be a judge for the 5th Annual Buffalo’s Best Pierogi Contest.  I organize the event for Corpus Christi’s Dożynki Polish Harvest Festival in August.

The contest has really grown by leaps and bounds and is a big hit at the festival…participants, judges and observers love it!!  And frankly, so do I!

I want to give you the chance to explore your inner pierogi.

How?

Do you want to be a judge at the contest?  Thought so.

All you have to do is send me an email giving the reason why you think you should be a judge.  Based on responses, I will select dwa (two) people to serve as a judge at the contest on August 18th.  Your responses don’t have to be long…just something to convince me why should be a judge.  I am accepting responses through 07/01/2012.
