In February 2016, WMHT Create viewers can compete in the Create Cooking Challenge: a national contest for viewers to demonstrate their culinary prowess and vie to be featured on Create TV.com. Create is public television’s premier lifestyle channel reaching more than 44 million annual viewers and featuring well known TV chefs.  Cooking content is the most popular of the genres featured on Create which also includes travel, home improvement, gardening and arts & crafts programs.

To participate in the Create Cooking Challenge running February 8-29, 2016, entrants must submit online a short (two minutes or less) video clip featuring their best culinary projects, recipes, or tips.
