Ace the Waste!

Everyone can play a part in reducing food waste. Even our youth! So, the USDA has launched a youth (ages 11-18)competition for ideas to reduce food waste.

Participants submit a written proposal or video. Criteria to be judged include originality and creativity; clarity of expression; and adherence/appropriateness to theme.  Topic ideas include prevention, recovering food waste, recycling, and raising awareness.

Deadline is May 24, 2019 at 5:00 pm EDT. Learn more at
