  "Two minutes! Let's go!"
Divided into two teams, students hurried about the kitchen in a nervous excitement as Barbara McConnell, Fort Campbell High School cafeteria manager and Falcons Junior Chef team coach reminded them of the few minutes they had left to complete their task. In this competition, students are docked crucial points for missing their timelines.
"It's kind-of nerve-wracking because we only have so much time to get everything done, when it's got to be done," said FCHS Junior Christiana Crawford.
In preparation for its upcoming regional competition, five student hopefuls participated in a cook-off Tuesday to determine which students would fill the top primary spots on the FCHS Farm to School Junior Chef Program team and continue on to compete.
"We can only have three-to-five members on the team, and two of those five are alternates," said McConnell. "The team that wins this cook-off will automatically be on the [primaries] on the team, and then we'll choose the remaining members."
