Nearly 150 people were in attendance to see high school culinary and restaurant management teams from Enfield High School, Fitch High School in Groton, Windsor High School and Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven compete for the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC for the National ProStart Invitational.
Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven came out on top, finishing in first place in both culinary and management. Enfield placed 2nd in both events and Fitch High School placed 3rd in Culinary.
Led by their educator Nate Bradshaw, both teams will travel to Boston this weekend to take part in the New England Regional ProStart Competition. This is a unique opportunity for our region, giving our students exposure to more industry professionals and helping them prepare for the national event.
The National ProStart Invitational will take place May 6-8 in Washington, DC. More info on their competition times to come!
