Aspiring chefs have a new chance to show off their talents and take home some cash. Panera Bread is offering $10,000 for the most creative new sandwich.

The Missouri-based chain of nearly 1,600 bakery cafes is kicking off a sandwich showdown contest.

The winning sandwich will be added to Panera menus at participating cafes across the country. The winner will also get $500 worth of Panera gift cards and free bagels for a year.
