A member of the Texas Chefs Association will be doing the judging, along with KTBC FOX7’s “Foodie”, Lauren Petrowski. There will be separate prizes for Youth (13-and-under) and adults (14-and-over).

Kids 10-13 and 14-18 are invited to complete in the chocolate-themed Fear Factor contest. Just like the TV Reality show, this one involves competing in teams, overcoming physical challenges and eating bugs (chocolate-covered, of course!). Fear Factor teams must register by 2 p.m. on Saturday the 16th; contest starts as soon as the Baking Contest winners awards have been announced , which is usually between 3 and 3:30 p.m.
