  • PHS ProStart students place 4th in the 2017 NC ProStart Invitational
    The North Carolina ProStart invitational (NCPI) is a two-day secondary school competition focused on restaurant management and culinary arts. Student competitors put their skills to the test in front of industry leaders, family and friends, all with hopes of earning a coveted scholarship from one of the nation’s premier culinary and restaurant management programs. The NCPI is composed of two distinct competitions: management and culinary. Management teams develop a proposal for the next promising restaurant concept and present it to the panel of industry judges in a trade show rotational format. Students must communicate their entrepreneurial ideas clearly and use their problem solving skills to solve challenges faced by managers daily. The culinary competition highlights each team’s creative abilities through the preparation of a three-course meal in 60 minutes, using only two butane burners, and without access to running water or electricity. There is no room for error as they are evaluated on taste, skill, teamwork, safety and sanitation.
