The SNIP Committee has put together a great conference with Keynote Speaker, Matt Upton, MN Dept of Education workshops and a new SNIP Challenge! Click here to hear a message from Matt Upton!
The SNIP Challenge will be a fun, interactive hand on test of one’s ability to think on their feet! This Challenge will consist of two rounds of contestants followed by a SNIP off challenge from winners of the first two challenges. Using 4 groups of 2 or more for the first two challenges, the winner from each round will move on to the final challenge! With a set of ingredients, each group will be tasked to create a recipe. At the same time, the audience will be doing an interactive training! How well do you know your school requirements?
All attendees are able to purchase a 2018 SNIP commemorative sweatshirt. Details here.
