America’s Best Kids Contest is a once on a lifetime opportunity for several children spanning the entirety of the nation.

Each child is assigned a job to help with meal planning and clean-up. And if your lad aspires to take this up as their profession, then this contest is jam-packed with all the culinary experience your child will need to kick start their career in this field. So don’t miss this opportunity!
