Every spring, Walnut Hill College holds its very own in-person Culinary and Chocolate Competitions to discover and recognize rising talent among high school students. Each competition is open to juniors and seniors and is separated into two divisions: high school and vocational-technical school.
For our Chocolate Competition, all of the students must bake a chocolate cake at home in advance of the competition. What sets each cake apart is the extraordinary design work that each student puts into his or her confection! Whether they choose to design a simple but elegant cake or go all out with a multi-colored, multi-layered masterpiece, the students are encouraged to be creative.
Each division of the Culinary and Chocolate Competitions awards scholarships to three winners in the amounts of $6,000, $3,000, and $1,800 to be used toward tuition at Walnut Hill College. The high school of the first-place winner in each division also receives $500 for its Family and Consumer Science Department or Culinary Arts Program.
