Two students at Drumheller Valley Secondary School have been recognized for their culinary skills.

Sam Tyson won a scholarship from a local business valued at $500 while Seung Ju Lee won $250 in second place. Tyson entered a pasta dish that was featured on the O'Shea's Restaurant menu during the month of April.

"Basically, I made a Fettuccine Alfredo with bacon and mushroom. I added a secret ingredient that was some lime zest on top, garnished with parsley and parmesan," confessed Tyson. "It was a very good dish."

Tyson, who is employed as a cook, used his knowledge of food and skills designing a dish he hoped people would like.

"I just sold the most dishes out of the (student) menu," he noted.

Tyson, who is graduating from high school this year, has an idea of where he wants his future to go.

"I think that (culinary arts) would be a good idea because I have passion in culinary (arts)," reasoned Tyson. "That, or go to Lethbridge (College) to become a windmill technician."

The scholarship, which is open to students every year from O'shea's Eatery and Ale House, it encourages them to get creative and have their menu item enjoyed by real customers. $1 from every contest menu item bought went towards the DVSS graduation.

Other menu items from other students included:

Pineapple Chicken Salad- Tessa Chomas

Sirracha Chicken Salad- Brooklyn Plante

Chicken Fiesta Salad- Taylor Plante

Vegetable Bacon Pomodoro- Kate Guo

Creamy Red Pepper Bacon Penne - Seung Ju Lee
