Cedar Crest Ice Cream of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation announce a contest to create the next Cedar Crest Ice Cream flavor. More than 1600 Wisconsin 4-H clubs are eligible to create and submit a flavor ‘recipe' with the top clubs named as finalists and the top flavor produced for summer 2017.

Information and the application will be available in the upcoming weeks on the Foundation's website, www.wis4hfoundation.org. Or, feel free to contact the Foundation at (608) 262-1597 or info@wis4hfoundation.org.

According to Brenda Scheider, Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, the Create an Ice Cream Flavor contest is a great opportunity for 4-H youth to work together to develop and name their flavor. "The most exciting part of the contest is the winning flavor will be available through Cedar Crest beginning next June."

Scheider credited Kay Schmit, Marketing Manager at Cedar Crest Ice Cream, for the creative idea, which already yielded popular flavors including Deep Space, the 2015 flavor contest winner. Deep Space was developed by the Badger Boosters 4-H Club in West Bend, Wisconsin.

Entries will be judged by a panel of ice cream experts chosen by Cedar Crest's staff. Cedar Crest manufacturers more than 80 flavors of ice cream at its Manitowoc, Wisconsin, plant, and distributes products in five states. Many of the flavors now produced by Cedar Crest Ice Cream, like Shipwreck and Elephant Tracks, came into existence via prior flavor competitions.
