Panhandle high school students face-off on culinary, restaurant management skills

Posted: Updated:

High school students from around the panhandle put heir culinary, menu building and restaurant management skills to the test today.
 
The regional ProStart competition kicked off at Scottsbluff High School.

The competition challenged students from panhandle schools, including Scottsbluff, Hemingford, North Platte and Alliance.

Some students were judged on knife skills, cooking ability, and menu building.

Others were challenged to design a concept for their own restaurant.

Brandy Nielson, a judge for the competition, says ProStart is designed to get high schoolers interested in the hospitality industry.
 
"We want kids to go on into the hospitality industry, it's a wonderful industry with lots of jobs available so we want these kids to continue their careers after this."
 
The willing teams from today's challenges will go on to compete in the state-wide competition on March 22.
