Raleigh resident and sixth-grade student Margalit Mermelstein is a contestant in the Ben’s Beginners Cooking Contest sponsored by Uncle Ben’s. Her video demonstrating her recipe for the Cary Academy-inspired Charger Roll can be seen on the contest website at https://www.bensbeginnerscontest.com/brand/gallery. Search for Margalit’s video by her first name or by the school zip code (27513). Remember to vote daily every vote matters!
Voting counts for 20% of her final score and begins at 12:00 PM on Wednesday October 9th and ends at 11:59 PM Sunday October 27th. Anyone aged 18 and over can vote once per e-mail address every 24-hour period. Please share this information with any friends and family who might be willing to support Margalit and our local schools. This is an easy way to help the school.
Community support for her entry is very important. Margalit stands to win $15,000 if her recipe is chosen as the grand prize winner and Cary Academy will win $30,000! If Margalit does not take the top prize she could still win $5,000 while Cary Academy wins $10,000.
