2016 Show Us Your Tray Contest Winner

We received hundreds of submissions from schools throughout the United States, and USDA staff assessed each entry for use of USDA Foods, creativity, and overall photo quality. We enjoyed viewing the many worthy and inspiring photos, and narrowing them down to one winner was a difficult task!

Congratulations to Michael Cotroneo from Duval County School District in Jacksonville, FL, who submitted Mandarin Chicken Salad, using USDA diced chicken and whole wheat tortilla strips. The tray also featured USDA flour and eggs in the cornbread muffin and USDA blueberries and strawberries in the Berry Crisp.

Thank you to everyone who showed us your tray. It was wonderful to see all of the fun and creative ways you are maximizing your USDA Foods!
