Submitting your entries is easy. All you have to do is go to www.claiborneprogress.net, click on the recipe contest and just submit your favorite recipe.

Where do the "Memories" come in?
The Memories portion of the contest is unique in that we are focusing on pictures from throughout 2011. Now, at year end, is a time to reflect. The categories for memories include Sports, sponsored by M.O.R., Community, sponsored by Teresa's Bakery, Family, sponsored by Tipton & Son and School, sponsored by Dalton Tire. The same prizes will be given by each business.
The overall winners will be selected from each, one from Meals and another from Memories.
