Each spring, ProStart students from across Michigan compete in the Michigan ProStart® Competition – a two day event with culinary, management/entrepreneurship, ServSafe knowledge bowl, and nutrition/marketing components. Industry professionals, as well as leading college and university instructors, judge the different components. The winning team in culinary and management/entrepreneurship are sent to the National ProStart® Invitational to compete against other teams from across the country. Thousands of dollars in scholarship money is awarded at both the state and national level.
The Michigan ProStart® Competition is the highlight of the year for many students across Michigan. Teams will meet in Lansing on March 18-19, 2018, for this annual culinary and management competition, hosted by the Michigan Restaurant Association Educational Support Foundation (MRA ESF). The Michigan ProStart Competition will take place at the Lansing Center, Lansing.
