'America Cooks with Chefs' Video Challenge
Learn healthy cooking recipes from James Beard Award-winning chefs.
2 trips to cook with celebrity chefs

Due September 3rd, 2014 - America Cooks With Chefs is a health and wellness movement that demonstrates the benefits of healthy cooking by connecting Americans to celebrity chefs and partners including The Clinton Foundation, James Beard Foundation, Weight Watchers, Deloitte, and Good Housekeeping. Through an educational and entertaining next-generation cooking competition, the initiative provides content and resources to inspire people to make healthier choices in their daily lives.

To participate, submit a video of no more than two minutes in length that tells the judges why participating in America Cooks With Chefs would help you and/or your family learn a few of the simple techniques required to prepare healthy food at home. 

Here are some ideas to get you started:
  * If you could change one aspect of your diet, what would it be and why?
  * What are your health goals?
  * What are the barriers preventing you from reaching your health goals?
  * Do you have a unique nutritional need?
  * Are you a parent? How do you get your kids involved in the kitchen?

Six contestants will be chosen for an all-expense-paid trip to team up with James Beard Award–winning chefs for a Kitchen Camp in the chef’s kitchen. The chefs will teach their teammates how to take raw ingredients and cook fast, healthy meals.

Along the way, Americans across the country will be inspired by the contestants’ progress through an original video series that captures the action. With their new skills in hand, the contestants will meet again for a Live Cooking Challenge at the Clinton Health Matters Initiative Conference in January 2015. A judging panel made up of chefs, experts, and celebrities will select the best dish in front of a live audience.
