Award-winning student chefs cook up their first-place burger

A duo of seniors in the culinary arts program at Jane Addams Business Careers Center took first-place at the "Burger Battle" in Columbus in February. Each student won $250 in cash and an $8,000 college scholarship through the competition sponsored by ProStart and the Ohio Beef Council.
 
They battled against high school students from around the state to whip up the best burger, as judged by top industry professionals from restaurants including Wendy's, White Castle and Michael Symon restaurants.
