Give Peas a Chance and win big prizes

Are you a second level school student who fancies winning a big cash prize by simply growing peas and coming up with a unique soup recipe for them? writes Brian Byrne.

Then, ‘Give Peas a Chance’ is the competition for you. Organised by the Grow It Yourself organisation in association with soup makers Cully & Sully, some 7,500 students will get a chance to do their growing and cooking thing.

During ‘Give Peas A Chance’ they will be allocated a series of challenges then will be asked to file the details of their own ‘ReciPEA For Success’ using their home-grown peas as inspirations for a brand-new soup recipe. A shortlisted group will be invited to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch scenario at the home of GIY, GROWHQ in Waterford on 25 May 2017. A winning team of two will be selected and crowned Give Peas A Chance Champions.

The prize includes a €3,000 food garden for the winners’ school, two iPads for the winning team and the brand new winning soup recipe will be produced by Cully & Sully and served at the GIY CafĂ© ‘GROW HQ’.
