It’s the Stride Cook Off!
Student chefs across the country had their aprons ready for the Stride National Cook Off Competition!
At Stride, we know how creative young people can be. We wanted to see that creativity in the kitchen. Students in grades 6–12 participated and the top five contestants from the first round went on to compete live in the Stride National Cook Off on June 16, 2022. You can watch the whole thing and see who won.
