THE ART INSTITUTES CULINARY SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION
The Art Institutes Best Teen Chef Competition, now in its 12th year, is an opportunity
for high school seniors across North America interested in pursuing a culinary career
to experience the excitement and discipline of the industry creativity, and earn
a tuition scholarship.
Winning entrants will participate in a Local Cook-Off Competition at each participating
Art Institute judged by professional chefs and Art Institute culinary faculty. Each
participating Art Institute will award the title of the school’s Best Teen Chef,
who will earn a $4,000 tuition scholarship toward a culinary program at that school.
Second place finishers at each school will earn a $1,000 tuition scholarship toward
a culinary degree at that school. Local Cook-Off Competitions will be held on or
around April 21, 2012.*
