LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky’s top teen cooks will put their skills to the test during the state fair in Louisville.

Teams will compete for scholarship money at the second annual Kentucky Farm to School Junior Chef State Tournament.

State Agriculture Department officials say the tournament will begin on the opening day of the fair on Thursday and conclude with the championship matchup at 10 a.m. EDT Aug. 22. All cook-offs will take place at the Gourmet Garden Stage in the lobby of South Wing A.

Teams will compete for more than $70,000 in scholarship money from Louisville-based Sullivan University.
