High school culinary and hospitality management students are heading to Disneyland for the 14th annual National ProStart Invitational. Those destined for Anaheim, Calif., won their state ProStart competitions.
Organized by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, the competition is set for April 18 through 20 at the Disneyland Hotel. Wondering why ProStart is important? Here are eight reasons:
“This Invitational brings together the best and brightest – really the future leaders of our industry – to not only demonstrate what they have learned in the classroom, but also represent their state’s ProStart program on the national level,” says Rob Gifford, the NRA’s executive vice president of strategic operations and philanthropy. “It is the best illustration for the critical tie between the industry and classroom, and makes ProStart a model for career technical education.”
