March 27, 2011

Paul Cline, a student at Chambersburg (Pa.) Area Senior High School, won a $4,000 scholarship to Paul Smith’s College after placing second in a culinary competition on campus.

Paul, of Chambersburg, competed March 5 with 16 other budding chefs at the 14th annual Paul Smith’s College Cooking for Scholarships competition.

Contestants were presented with the same ingredients and given 3 1/2 hours to plan a menu and prepare a meal using those items. Competitors were also required to demonstrate skills in tasks such as cutting vegetables and preparing sauces, and complete a brief written exam.

More than $30,000 in scholarships and prizes was awarded at the event, which was judged by a panel of Paul Smith’s faculty chefs. Scholarships are renewable for up to four years.

The competitors prepared their food at the Statler Foundation Culinary Training Facility on the Paul Smith’s campus. The building includes seven culinary labs and is also home to the Wally Ganzi Jr. Restaurant Training Center, which is modeled after the renowned Palm restaurant chain of steak houses.
