Maryland High School Students Compete for Culinary Scholarships


Today at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, twenty high school teams are competing for culinary scholarships from a pool of $750,000 offered by schools in the region and nationally. At 8:45 a.m. the first two teams from Oakland Mills and Fairmont Heights began their hour long session to prepare three courses for local chef judges. Fox 5’s Brooke Baldwin spent the morning interviewing teams, parents, teachers, Maryland Hospitality Education Foundation president Marshall Weston and judges. Tonight at the awards dinner the winning teams will be announced in the culinary and management competitions — they get all expense trips to San Diego to compete in the Nationals — for even more scholarships.
