Junior chefs head to Kentucky State Fair to compete for scholarships in Ag Department program


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Junior chefs will be in the spotlight during an event this week at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville.

The Kentucky Agriculture Department says 15 high school teams will compete for scholarships and a trophy at the third annual Kentucky Proud Farm to School Junior Chef Tournament.

The championship round will be at 10 a.m. Friday at the Gourmet Garden Stage in the lobby of South Wing A.

Sullivan University will offer a $6,000 scholarship to each member of the champion team, a $4,000 scholarship to each runner-up team member and a $2,000 scholarship to each member of two semifinalist teams.

The Agriculture Department says the program encourages students to learn to cook healthy meals from local ingredients and teaches students about agriculture, marketing, organization, teamwork and community involvement.
