NKHS Culinary Arts Students Ace the Culinary Decathlon

Recently two NKHS Culinary Arts students competed in the Culinary Decathlon competition, sponsored by the Culinary Institute of Virginia.  Shawnee Smith placed 6th in the competition and earned a $3000 scholarship.  Amber Sealey placed 2nd in the competition and earned a $12000 scholarship!

The competition included a Culinary Knowledge Written Assessment, a Culinary Skills Demonstration, and a Meal Presentation.  The competition was also timed - students had only two hours to complete the the Skills Demonstration and to prepare and present an entree.  Wow! Complete information about the competition is available here.

Congratulations to our very own "Top Chefs", Shawnee and Amber!  Also many thanks to NKHS Culinary Arts teacher Ann Campbell for her work with our students.
