"Future Chefs" Competition

After two rounds of judging, Sodexo Foods has narrowed a list of 140 local finalists down to five semi-finalists in its nationwide “Future Chefs” competition – and one of the five is our own Matthew Aguilar from Pioneer Park Elementary! Matthew was selected as the top student chef in the Midwest Region of the competition, earning him his spot in the finals.
Each of the five finalists will be judged on their dish and their stage presence through a YouTube video that will be voted on by the public. LPS-TV director Lynn Cordes taped Matthew preparing his “Crabby Sandwich” on Monday and the video has been forwarded to Sodexo for posting.
Voting takes place from April 28-May 4. Stay tuned for details about how to vote!


LPS is extremely proud of the people who work for us. Please join us tonight as we honor our Teacher of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Champions for Children and retirees. We'll also honor two members of the Lawton community for their support of our children.
The celebration begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Lawton High School auditorium. Parking is conveniently located east of the school; please enter through the new classroom addition. A reception will follow the event!
