Some people think the big challenge of the Thanksgiving feast is preparing the turkey. But what to do with the leftovers can be an even bigger challenge.

If you're tired of the same old turkey soup we're here to help. For free.

All you have to do is tell us in 150 words or less why you should be one of the 12 readers selected for Wishbone U., our ninth annual Thanksgiving cooking boot camp. This year's class will focus on innovative leftovers.

The hands-on class will be 4 p.m. Oct. 13 at Apron's Cooking School at Publix Supermarket in the Shoppes of Citrus Park in Tampa. Include your name, age, city and daytime phone number and send entries to Wishbone U., c/o Taste, Tampa Bay Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731, or email features@tampabay.com. Put THANKSGIVING in the subject line. Cooks as young as 13 will be considered.

The deadline is Oct. 4, and winners will be notified by Oct. 7.

Participants must be willing to be photographed during the class, because it's not just their skills we want to improve. The experience — and recipes — will be shared in Taste on Nov. 20.
