Budding Belgrade High School chefs raising money to compete in national culinary competition, Prostart

Belgrade High School students are killing it in the kitchen and in state cooking competitions. 10 students at Belgrade High School participating in a program known as “Prostart”—an immersive culinary training program that teaches kids the skills they need for a career in the kitchen, the knowledge to run a restaurant, and the dedication to be a good employee in any industry. Over spring break, they won a state championship for their culinary artistry at the Montana Prostart Invitational. At the competition, students prepare an appetizer, entrée, and dessert from scratch in 60 minutes with no battery-operated appliances or utensils. With that win, they now has the chance to prove they are the best young culinary minds in the country. The only problem? Raising the $35,000 they need to get there.  A bingo fundraiser is being held on April 8th at the American Legion in Manhattan. Another fundraiser will be held on April 14th at the Mint in Belgrade. A GoFundMe was created to help cover the travel and lodging expenses for the Prostart Nationals in Washington DC. They’re hoping to raise $35,000 to get the kids, their equipment, and their advisors to the competition at no cost to them. Go Fund Me is Help MT kids to Prostart Nationals
