CALHOUN, GA - Four Sonoraville High School students placed first at the State 4-H Food Challenge held at Rock Eagle this past weekend. Students Joe Dunnaway, Will Dunnaway, Hannah Jones, and William Parish made up the Senior Gordon County team that participated in the Food Challenge.
The Food Challenge, which is like the TV show Chopped, teams made up of 3-4 students receive three secret ingredients and can access a pantry of available items. The teams are given 40 minutes to create a dish for judging. When complete, participants present the dish to the judges and are scored on preparation, serving size, food safety, nutritional value, and cost.
The Sonoraville team sealed their first place win with their prepared dish and earned the Master 4-H status. They will now advance to the National Food Challenge competition held in Dallas, Texas.
