Three finalists will then get a chance to compete at a “burger bash” to be held Sunday, June 9, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Friendly’s in Massapequa Park. A panel of judges will pick Long Island's winning burger based on creativity, taste and presentation.

The winner will get a $100 Friendly’s gift card as well as a chance to have the chosen burger served for a month at his or her local Friendly’s.
