WASHINGTON, DC – Monday, March 5, 2018 – In an exclusive video series, chef and restaurateur Guy Fieri and celebrity chef Carla Hall offer words of wisdom to 140,000 high school students enrolled in ProStart, a leading national career and technical education program that teaches high school students culinary arts and restaurant management skills and fundamentals. The series begins airing today on ProStart’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
 
“Every industry wishes they had a program like ProStart,” said Fieri, culinary rock star and host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and Guy’s Grocery Games. “It’s the opportunity to learn about food, not just for the career aspect but for the life aspect… It is absolutely quintessential.”
 
“To all of our ProStart students, I know you’re getting ready for competition. I’m sure that you’re prepared and you’re ready to go,” said Hall, past Top Chef competitor and cohost of The Chew. “Stay within yourself, breathe, stick with the plan – because I know about competition – and you’ll do very well. So good luck!”
 
Guy’s and Carla’s tips will come in handy, as the students’ state competitions are well underway with a chance to win and go to the National ProStart Invitational (NPSI18) in Providence, Rhode Island, April 27 – 29. In Providence, top teams representing all 50 states, including schools in Guam and Germany, will compete for top honors and more than $200,000 in scholarships, in addition to scholarships from top culinary and hospitality schools across the country.
