Chartwells Video/Recipe Contest
Create a lunch or breakfast recipe and short video using a cooking show format with the theme "What's Your Hometown Specialty?" This video and recipe contest is open to all students ages 13 - 18 at Chartwells locations, with a limit of one entry per student.
The purpose of the video should be to teach healthful eating habits and feature a breakfast or lunch recipe that is special to your hometown or local to your region. Recipes will be judged on the following parameters:
Uses at least 3 food groups (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, dairy)
Takes 45 minutes or less to prepare
Total of 10 ingredients or less
Costs $20 or less to prepare for a family of 4 - 6 people
September and October Food Focuses (apples or whole grains, or both)

Recipe that offers variety and is colorful
The top three national winners, as voted on by Chartwells Executive Chefs, will receive a visit from celebrity Chef Jet Tila to prepare their recipe with them at school.
