My American Dream
My American Dream Contest 2015 – The Great American Food Trip
Food is one the most fascinating aspects of any country's culture. In the United States, our cuisine reflects America's history and ethnic diversity, with each region having its own signature dishes. This year we want you to tell us which U.S. city, state, or region you would like to visit to experience a uniquely American cuisine or dish, and why. Have you wondered what authentic Tex-Mex food is like? Are you curious about the distinctive spices used in Louisiana Creole cooking? Are you dying to try Southern style BBQ? Send us your "Great American Food Trip" ideas and you could win a trip for two to the United States.
In a 1-2 minute video, a short essay, a blog entry, or a photo slide show with captions, tell us about the U.S. dishes or cuisines that you've chosen! Entries can be in English OR Chinese, but must include:
- A specific site in the United States (city, state, region, restaurant, festival, etc.)
- Why you've chosen that destination or food
- Why your chosen food is unique
- A trip itinerary that is realizable within one-weeks' time
Participation is open to Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and BNO Passport Holders ages 18 & over.
Entries must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 17, 2015 to be eligible.
If you're sending a video, upload it to YouTube and send us the link. If you're sending a photo slideshow, upload it to Flickr and send us the link. Please include your full name, date of birth, valid email address, mailing address, and phone number in your entry.
