After awarding 5 recipients as “Legend Among Us” before an enthusiastic audience at the Arkansas Heritage Celebration of Black History Month, author Jason Irby announced his pledging of the first $500.00 to establish a contest that would create a signature Arkansas food dish.
Irby is an author, and founding chairman of Jason IRBY INNOVATION Foundation (JIIF). Secretary/Treasurer, Tiffaney Lewis also pledged a matching $500.00 in prize money.
Irby first revealed the initiative to establish a the Arkansas Signature Food Dish Contest after reading IT’S OFFICIAL! The Real Stories Behind Arkansas’s State Symbols, by Arkansas Capital Historian David Ware.
Irby then began looking closer into the matter.
