Homemade Needham Contest


Have you been making Needhams for years? Does your family have a favorite Needham recipe? Here’s your chance to showcase your own homemade Needhams!

As part of the first annual Maine Needham Festival, we’re holding a Homemade Needham Contest, open to the general public.

To be eligible for entry, Needhams must be original flavored (vanilla) and made in the true “home-made” sense, from scratch, by hand, at home. Non-commercial participants only, please.


We’ve pulled together a panel of professional Needham-makers from around the state to serve as judges for this competition, so bring your best Needhams and be ready for some fun!

Pre-registration for entry is preferred. Please complete the form here.
