Best Teen Chef Competition

Know any aspiring chefs? Teens can enter now to win the title of Best Teen Chef and a scholarship to culinary school! Personally, when I was a teen, I couldn't even boil water (or at least I hadn't yet tried to!), so I imagine the teens who win this must be pretty impressive!

ATLANTA (GA) – Attention high school seniors who aspire to a culinary education! The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Atlanta is now accepting entries for the Best Teen Chef Competition 2010. Now in its eleventh year, the Best Teen Chef Competition awards more than $200,000 in tuition scholarships to high school seniors in the U.S. and Canada interested in pursuing a career in the fast growing culinary industry. The scholarships can be used only at one of The Art Institutes locations offering culinary arts, including The Art Institute of Atlanta.

The national top prize winner will earn a full-tuition scholarship toward a bachelor’s degree or associate degree to study culinary arts at one of the more than 30 participating Art Institutes locations.

The local cook-off competition will take place at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Atlanta on April 17, 2010. The top three winners of the local cook-off competition will each win a tuition scholarship towards a culinary arts degree program at The Art Institute of Atlanta.

The first place local winner will progress to the National Best Teen Chef Final Round Competition, which will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2010, at The Art Institute of Houston.

In addition to a full-tuition scholarship and the title of Best Teen Chef 2010, the national first place winner, in partnership with Food Network, will be an "Intern for a Day" at Food Network Kitchens in New York City. The winner will also receive a tour of Food Network’s studios, dinner for two at a Food Network chef's restaurant and a library of Food Network Kitchens cookbooks. In 2008, Jonathan Miller of Savannah was named Best Teen Chef 2008 and is currently a culinary arts student at The Art Institute of Atlanta.

“Each year this event draws talented teens who have a real love for being in the kitchen, and enjoy using their creativity and imagination to create wonderful meals for themselves, their friends, and families,” says Chef Jim Gallivan, department chair of culinary arts at The Art Institute of Atlanta. “We are looking forward to meeting this year’s group of talented young chefs-to-be.”

To be eligible to enter the competition, high school seniors must submit a completed Entry and Release Form by February 5, 2010 to a participating The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes location where they wish to enter the competition. They must submit their complete entries by February 26, 2010.
