MITCHELL ó Huronís team that took part in the ProStart Invitational held Tuesday at Mitchell came home with a second place finish in the culinary division.

Team members are Ali Johnson, Stephanie VandenHock, Emily Forrest, Susana Camacho and Marilyn Wolff. The team competed under the direction of instructor Kathy Engst.

Emily Forrest was also presented the Presidentís Award, which is given by the Black Hills Chapter of Professional Chefs to an individual who exhibits leadership.

The ProStart Invitational is an intense, fast-paced event, with teams vying for state titles in a culinary division and a business management division.†

Nearly 70 high†school students participated in the competition.

In the culinary portion of the competition, teams of students demonstrated knife skills and then had just 60 minutes to prepare a three-course gourmet meal without the use of electricity. Many of the stateís premier chefs watched closely, scoring the teams on numerous factors including knife skills, presentation, taste, sanitation and teamwork.

Teams also went head-to-head in a business management competition. They gave presentations on the steps they would need to take to start up a restaurant. In addition to presenting details about the concept to one set of judges, a second set of food-service professionals grilled the teams about their business plans.

The ProStart Invitational is a joint effort of the South Dakota Department of Education, the South Dakota Retailers Association and the South Dakota ProStart Advisory Committee.

Participating students were from the following high schools: Aberdeen Central A-TEC, Britton-Hecla, Brookings, Huron, McIntosh, Madison Central, Mitchell CTE Academy, Mobridge-Pollock and Sioux Falls CTE Academy.
