A video produced by Summerland Secondary School students has won the top prize in a provincial competition.

More than 50 video entries from across the province were entered in the Hands-on Cook-off Contest.

The contest, organized through Better Together B.C., was to promote cooking in the home so young people can reap the benefits of cooking together, such as better nutrition and health, better connection and improved school performance.

“Cooking together is beneficial in many ways,” said Marnie Mennell, home economics teacher at the high school.

Four students were involved in the video where they prepare a meal together.

“The four just showed how cooking together can be fun and it’s a good thing to do,” she said.

Prize money from the video will go to improvements at the courtyard at the high school.

At present, there are some gardening beds set up in the courtyard area.
