In addition to winning the title “Best Mac & Cheese in the Poconos,” the first-place restaurant will receive one free month of digital advertising from Lamar Advertising, valued at $1,500.

The second-place winner in the professional category will receive a $500 radio advertising package on Pocono 96.7, courtesy of Neversink Media.

The first-place winner in the amateur category will receive $100 cash, with additional prizes for second and third place.

This year’s judges will include Al The Wingman, broadcaster from Pocono 96.7; last year’s winning chef from Pocono Pub, and a surprise judge to be revealed at the event.

Winners will be announced based on the votes from the Mac & Cheese Bake-Off public attendees and the panel of judges.
