You'll have to move fast on this one, as the first deadline is Friday:
Many of the 50 Art Institutes campuses across the nation (including the one in Sacramento) are offering $4,000 tuition scholarships to their International Culinary Schools. The 12th annual Best Teen Chef Competition invites high school seniors to participate. A separate, first-time competition invites participation by high school graduates seeking culinary degrees (there is no age limit).
High school seniors must first download the Best Teen Chef Competition brochure and fill out the Entry and Release form, at www.artinstitutes.edu/culinary. All the details and rules for both competitions are there, plus an invitation to conduct a live chat with an Art Institute representative. Those who finish in second place at each Art Institute will receive $1,000 tuition scholarships.
The next deadline is Feb. 24 and involves submitting your best recipe, plus a 250-word essay.
Local cook-offs - including one at the Sacramento campus - will be held around April 21. The Sacramento campus is at 2850 Gateway Oaks Drive. For more information: (916) 830-6320.
