On February 16, 2018, students, educators, and chefs will gather at the Oasis Hotel and Convention Center in Springfield, MO for the 17th Annual Missouri ProStart® Invitational. Top ProStart students from across the state will demonstrate their culinary skills and business acumen in a fast-paced competition to win their share of scholarship opportunities and the honor of representing Missouri at the National ProStart Invitational to be held in April in Providence, Rhode Island.
As we do every year, we are reaching out for help. We need judges for the Culinary Competition and the Management Competition. A required judges’ orientation will be held Thursday evening, February 15, at the Oasis. The competition begins at 7:00 a.m. on Friday and runs until 4:00 p.m. Missouri Restaurant Association will pay for Thursday night hotel accommodations and reimburse judges for mileage.
Your continued support of this successful industry-driven program is greatly appreciated. Those interested in serving as a judge at the 2018 Competition should contact Missouri ProStart Coordinator, John LaRocca at : email@example.com.
