Local girl chosen as finalist in cooking competition
Sarah Wilhite, a 7-year-old Richmond resident, has been selected as one of 25 finalists in the Uncle Ben's Beginners Rice competition. She submitted a photo entitled, "Going for the Gold with Uncle Ben's."
Five winners in the competition will receive $15,000 and $30,000 for their school. Wilhite was a student at Red Bird Christian School, a part of the Red Bird Mission, and has chosen that school to receive the money to help under-served families in rural Kentucky.
The five winners will be selected by the number of online votes received through Nov. 13. To vote for Whilhite’s photo, go to Beginners.unclebens.com and click on "Going for the Gold with Uncle Ben's Rice."
