ProStart – The Ultimate Challenge
Rigorous coursework, hands-on learning, on-the-job training, hard work, skill, passion, and drive are all traits of a Family and Consumer Sciences ProStart student. Every year teams from Utah represent the Utah Restaurant Association ProStart program to compete in individual state competitions. The first-place teams in the culinary and/or management competitions then move on to compete at the annual National ProStart Invitational.
In April, 2010, the ProStart team from Brighton High School went to the National ProStart Invitational in Kansas City to compete in the culinary arts event, against other high school teams from schools from across the nation. Before winning a spot at the National ProStart Invitational Brighton High School students competed against culinary students across the state of Utah, including those from Ogden, Provo, Tooele, and Cedar City. After winning the state competition the Brighton High School team went on to take sixteenth place in Kansas City.
Fast forward to 2011. . .on Thursday, March 10 ProStart students from across the state will showcase their talents, skills, and abilities at the state competition at the University Park Marriott Hotel. Student teams will compete for a spot at the National ProStart Invitational on April 21-25 in Kansas City.
