Several Culinary students participated in the state proficiency and STAR events competitions in February offered by FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America). February 1st, Andrew Marquez (Lemont), Rachel Smith (Lemont), and Leiah Green (Plainfield East) competed in a culinary competition at Robert Morris University. Students were put in teams with students from other schools to create four dishes. Leiah and Andrew's team each earned a 2nd place ribbon and Rachel's team earned a 3rd place ribbon.

One week later, the STAR events competition took place at the College of DuPage.  First place ribbons were awarded to Hayley Melone (Romeoville) and Monserrat Hernandez (Bolingbrook) for their salad creations. Sara Glasgow (Plainfield North) competed in interviewing and placed 2nd in her category. In Fondant cake decorating, a 2nd place ribbon was given to Paige Koranda (Romeoville). Three students competed in Frosted Cake Decorating, all receiving 2nd place ribbons including Michael Corcoran (Romeoville), Rebeca Alvarado (Bolingbrook) and Austin McGue (Plainfield Central). A few of these students will now be competing at the state level in Springfield on April 19th. Best of luck to our Wilco students!
