The 4 Stars for Lauren Memorial Scholarship for local high school students

The 4 Stars for Lauren Memorial Scholarship honors Lauren Chapin, the former food critic at the Kansas City Star. The scholarship is for high school students in the Kansas City metropolitan area who are enrolled in the chef apprenticeship program.

Applicants must submit one recipe for an appetizer, salad or dessert. They must also submit a cost/price evaluation for that dish. They will be judged primarily on the success and originality of their recipes. For the inaugural year of this process, winners will be selected by the college. In subsequent years, a panel of local chefs and restaurateurs will judge the recipes and help select the winners.

The college will administer the distribution of each scholarship, including the amounts of each and the number awarded. Financial need may also be a consideration.

Winners will be invited to the 4 Stars for Lauren benefit, to be held June 17 at the Boulevard Brewery hospitality room. Attendance is recommended but not mandatory.

The scholarship applications must be in the Johnson County Community College Hospitality Management Program office by May 31, 2010. The students will be notified by the Financial Aid office.
