Ready to compete on our national stage in 2020? You’ve got one last chance


ACF National President Stafford DeCambra, CEC, CCE, CCA, AAC, Emeritus, visited our National Office in early December. While he was here, he took a peek at some of our 2020 competition applications. Chef Stafford was so impressed by the level of talent we have competing, he decided everyone should be able to compete on the big stage at ACF National Convention: Dallas!

Yes, that’s right: All student teams and individual competitors will advance to the National Competition!

This is something we have never done before, and we want you to be a part of it! As Chef Stafford has traveled the globe competing, he knows the thrill of cooking on national and international stages. It is a feeling he would like to share with all of you.

With that in mind, we are re-opening competition registrations! The deadline to register will be January 15 with no exceptions.

Applications for each competition can be found at
