Art Institutes Passion for Fashion 2013 competition

Dear friends, although this post is not about food it will benefit many of you as it is a fun opportunity for high school seniors to showcase their creative ideas and get an opportunity to earn a scholarship towards a hands-on fashion education.
The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition 2013 allows teens that love fashion and style to earn a tuition scholarship.  The VP of Academic Affairs for The Art Institutes says that this competition serves as a vehicle where aspiring fashion professionals can express their zeal for an industry that is both dynamic and rewarding. 
Passion for Fashion Competition is open to legal residents of the fifty United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are full-or part-time high school seniors scheduled to graduate in 2013 with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average.  Entries must be submitted here at The Art Institutes Scholarship Competition site before February 14, 2013.   
This competition has two categories:
1. Fashion Design - where entrants submit three original sketches of an evening wear garment
2. Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management - entrants submit a fashion trend forecast board

Entrants must choose an Art Institutes school that they wish to represent in this competition, and later attend.  Local competitions will take place at each participating Art Institutes school throughout U.S. and Canada.  The winners for both these two categories will earn a $3,000 tuition scholarship to The Art Institutes school they represent in the competition.  Local first place winners in each category will move on to the national competition where the national grand prize winners will be chosen by a panel of fashion industry professionals.

Middle Eastern cuisine and Share Your Simple Contest

Using the pre made sauce from Saha helps us make delicious tasting Middle Eastern dishes. I used the Saha middle eastern marinate and sauce to enjoy a variety of meals. I marinated this beef using the Saha shawarma marinate and baked it following the instruction on the bottle.  We enjoyed it in wraps.
The shish taouk sauce from Saha is made with a combination of onion, tomatoes, aromatic spices originated from Turkey and Lebanon.  This tangy sauce combined with yogurt is used to marinate and grill chicken on skewers.  I marinated chicken and mushrooms with this sauce and grilled in the bbq.  The unused sauce stays well in the fridge so we don't have to use it in right away. If you would like to try the sauces/marinates it is available at these retailers and online, which is shipped within Canada and US.
