Four students from Prospect Elementary competed in the Future Chef competition on March 9. The contestants were chosen from the 20 elementary school students who submitted healthy comfort food recipes to compete in the district-wide event. Deven Meade, a fifth-grader, took first place with his turkey and gnocchi soup; third-grader Emily Musgrave took second with her Million Dollar Spaghetti; third-grader Selena Roberts finished third with SR Chicken Homemade Alfredo; and fifth-grader Sarah Francis finished fourth with Pasta Salad Sparks. Oberlin joined 256 other districts in the country holding Future Chef events. Meade will now take part in a regional Future Chef competition.
