This goes to the County sending in the largest number of entries. Through the Contest we try to teach the value of thrift by conserv- ing home canned ZpToduets, and after the Contest is over, the jars are dis- tributed to charity. So we feel Contest is all worth while, since it encourages more home canning, it offers friendly competition in this fine household act, it awards over $5000.00 in cash and prizes to suc- cessful ones and it finally feeds the sick, the blind, and the aged." There is no entry fee and no tape to enter this Contest. Each con- testant receives one free Perfect Mason Jar together with necessary entry material.
