Winners get a full-tuition scholarship toward an associate’s degree, certificate or diploma program, to study culinary arts at any of the 30 participating Art Institute locations including The Art Institute of California-San Francisco.

In addition to the scholarship and the title of Best Teen Chef 2008, the first-place winner will be an “Intern for a Day” at the Food Network Kitchens in New York City.

To participate, send a complete entry and release form to The Art Institute of California-San Francisco or fill out an online entry form at www.artinstitutes.edu/btc.

The deadline for entries is Feb. 29, 2008. A local Best Teen Chef Cook-off Competition will be held April 12.

The national, final round will be May 17 at The Art Institute of Las Vegas.
