State contest designed to inspire healthy eating

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee is sponsoring a contest designed to inspire people to eat healthy foods.

The competition involves creating menu options for lunch in four categories: Cost savvy; easy breezy; school's in; and sky's the limit.

Entry criteria are U.S. Department of Agriculture dietary guidelines, which stress using fruit, vegetables, proteins, grains and calcium.

Each category will have two winners: $500 for first place and $250 for second place.
