"The first contest was held in 1949 as the Grand National Recipe and Baking Contest and hosted in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The grand prize was originally $25,000. From 1996 to 2014, the grand prize was $1,000,000. Since 2018, the grand prize is $50,000 plus a kitchen makeover from GE Appliances. The only required ingredient in the early contests was Pillsbury's BEST Flour. There was no contest in 1965 because the contest was moved from October to February. Occasionally, there has been a male category winner (1978, 1990, 1992, and 2002). The only male champion was Kurt Wait of Redwood City, California, who won in 1996; that year, 14 of the 100 finalists were men. The contest had reverted to an annual contest in 2013 and 2014, after the previous 18 contests were held on the even-numbered years. " (from Wikipedia)
