This is an annual competition and this year all of the student participants were 5th graders. The theme for this year's competition was "Comfort Foods".
Students had to prepare their recipe and then tell the judges about their healthy recipe and answer questions while the judges tasted their entry. For the first time ever we had a tie for 2 and 3 places.
