The registration fee offsets the costs associated with running Jr. Iron Chef VT, including event rentals, printing, and staff time to coordinate the event. Teams fund their registration and practice expenses in a variety of creative ways. Sponsorships from small businesses, incorporation into after school programs, healthy bake sales, and PTO donations help teams across the state raise their Jr. Iron Chef VT expenses. Please be in touch if you need help or ideas to fund your team!
