Five Milton Hershey School (MHS) students recently participated in the 2019 Pennsylvania ProStart Culinary Invitational where they worked as a team to test their culinary skills in front of industry leaders. MHS students placed first in the state-wide competition for the fourth consecutive year.

After months of training and preparation, MHS students competed in the Culinary and Management categories of competition. For the culinary event, students successfully created a three-course meal in under an hour using only two butane burners. As part of the culinary competition, butane burners were their only source of heat—they did not have access to running water, electricity, or ovens.

Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R) Managing Director of the Restaurant Group, Brian Daily, and several leading chefs from HE&R helped to support the students leading up to and throughout the process. They listened to the students presenations and provided guidance and feedback. Their knowledge combined with the skills of the students propelled them to succeed at the competition.
