CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association is encouraging students to learn about maple production by offering a $2,000 prize for the best tasting maple syrup.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2gPJUXg) the group is starting the contest so students can learn about the science and process of making maple syrup. Students up to age 18 in teams of four can submit applications to compete by Feb. 1.

Selected teams will be paired with a mentor who will monitor the production process. Each group will submit one quart of syrup by April to be judged at the association’s July meeting. The winners will receive a $2,000 prize.
