(HENDERSON, NV March 2015) - The Art Institute of Las Vegas, located at 2350 Corporate Circle, in partnership with the City of Henderson will host the Healthy Henderson Recipe Contest finale at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 26, 2015. The event is a culmination of the inaugural recipe contest, which encouraged individuals to submit original healthy recipes to be included in the Healthy Henderson cookbook.

Sixty qualified recipes were received, and from these recipes, 12 were selected to move on to the final judging stage. Culinary students and instructors at The Art Institute of Las Vegas will prepare the top four entries in the appetizer, entrée and dessert categories, referencing the winning recipe photos to ensure consistency in recreating each recipe.

The recipes will be judged on nutrition, originality, taste and appearance/presentation. Three culinary instructors will serve as judges, joining City of Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen and Southern Nevada Health District Registered Dietician Nutritionist Aurora Buffington. 

The Healthy Henderson cookbook featuring all of the recipes will be available for purchase this summer at all City of Henderson recreation centers.
