Maddie Hinze from Plew Elementary School won first place; Jace Barefield from Edge Elementary School placed second.

The competition attracted significantly more Future Chefs than the 2013 event, according to Jack Noonan, the school district's Sodexo operations manager.

"There were 36 entries last year; this year we had about 80," he said.

The competition allows children to express their creative skills, said Baker resident Kelli Doss, mother of participant Brady Fields, 10.

"This is something that he did on his own ... it has really been awesome that he can excel at this," she said.

Brady, a Baker School fourth-grader, made a grilled black bean and tuna wrap for the competition. He said he's considering becoming a chef when he grows up.

"I like that other people can taste what I make," he said.
