Mayfield High wins first Junior Chef competition

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Mayfield High School won top honors at the first Farm to School Junior Chef championship at the Kentucky State Fair.

The three-member team from Mayfield came away with a narrow victory over Fern Creek at last week's competition.

The Mayfield team used a baked fajita recipe to win.

The competition was created to teach students cooking skills, encourage them to make healthy food choices and to raise awareness about foods available in Kentucky. State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says the competition teaches students to have an appreciation for agriculture.

Sullivan University awarded $6,000 scholarships for each member of the winning team and $4,000 scholarships for each member of the runner-up team. The school awarded $2,000 scholarships to each member of the two third-place teams, Boyle County and Whitley County.
