4-H Food Challenge Judges

The 4-H Food Challenge contest challenges teams of students to create a dish using only a predetermined set of ingredients but no recipe. From these ingredients, team members must identify and prepare a dish to present to judges. During the presentation before judges, team members gave an oral presentation covering food safety, nutrition, and cost analysis for the recipe they have created. Objectives for the 4-H Food Challenge include: To provide opportunity for participants to exhibit their knowledge and skill when preparing and presenting a dish, To provide opportunity for participants to learn from other team members, to Promote teamwork, To give participants opportunities for public speaking, to provide leadership opportunities, and to promote proper food safety techniques and handling. GHS Students have been learning basic nutrition information and food safety and sanitation skills in the Family and Consumer Skills Orientation program. They drew on this information as they participated in the week long activity. Questions about the event contact Patti Maurer,(pmaurer@bccu2.org)at 618-664-1370,or Liz Miller at 618-664-3665.
