Congratulations to Ninety-One fourth grader, Madi Bigej. She is Sodexo USA's 2017 Future Chef national contest winner. After winning the District competition, she moved on to the regional round of 40, and was one of the five national finalists.
Madi learned that she won the national contest in class this morning:
Madi's Cauliflower Tots earned her the top spot in the competition.
Madi will now receive a celebratory event at Ninety-One School, and she and her classmates will receive prizes valued at approximately $1,800. The school plans to have an assembly to present the prizes, which Madi will work with Sodexo to determine. She wants the prizes to benefit the whole school. Nutrition services will add Madi's cauliflower tots to the school lunch menu this month. Madi's recipe will also be featured on next year's promotional menus for Sodexo-served schools across the country.
