AMES, Iowa – Tailgating is a major part of Iowa State football. Now, through Hy-Vee’s Tailgate Recipe of the Week promotion Cyclone fans can pit their Saturday cooking talents against other Iowa State backers with the chance to bring home major league prizes. The contest is set to begin Monday and conclude Nov. 9.  Customers will register only at with minimum age of 18 to enter.
This is a seven-week promotion with each week having a different theme.  For the seven weeks following an Iowa State football game, three recipes will be randomly selected and prepared by Hy-Vee Test Kitchen with a taste test determining the winner.  Only the weekly winner will be contacted and receive a $250 Hy-Vee gift card and prize pack from Iowa State.
Contestants may re-enter each week (excluding the winner).  Following the conclusion of the seven-week promotion, the seven winners and a guest, will be invited to the Nov. 21 Iowa State vs. Creighton basketball game at Wells Fargo Arena. These contestants will be recognized on the court and the grand-prize winner, first runner-up and second runner-up will be announced.  These winners will also be determined by a taste test featuring the recipes from all seven winners.
