The 10th annual National Dairy Council (NDC) New Product Competition is looking for the next innovative dairy product from US college students.

Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to compete by developing innovative dairy-based products for gamers. Successful entries will meet competition criteria, demonstrate innovation and provide value to consumers.

This competition is an opportunity for students to develop products that are in line with industry and consumer insights to uncover innovative dairy-based products for gamers.
