"The competition in general teaches a great deal of responsibility, as well as time management skills," commented Ethan Litwiller of Huron High School, who won the Chicken Fabrication Skills Award in the culinary portion of the competition. "You have to cram three courses into an hour, and you get the experience of making the gourmet side of food. Every kid knows how to make mac and cheese. Not every kid knows how to make a gourmet three course meal."
"It a great chance for kids that normally wouldn work together to work together, become a team, and more importantly become friends, and be proud of what they do," she said.
"The ProStart program is designed for management of a restaurant and for the culinary aspect of it," Sachen noted, "but it also teaches you more than that. It teaches you team building skills, and if you wanted to run any type of business it teaches you the management skills for that."
McIntosh High School student Jason Bunn summed up what it was like to compete in the culinary division.
