LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A group of chefs from Sullivan University are working with high school students from around the country in a cooking contest to create meals for astronauts in outer space.

The contest, which is run through the NASA HUNCH program, which stands for High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware, seeks to find the best recipe that meets different criteria for an astronaut’s diet in outer space. The students in the top groups will receive scholarship awards, with the first place team receiving full rides to Sullivan University. The winning recipe will also be made and launched into space, where it will become dinner for astronauts.

The contest judging was Thursday, with winners to be announced at a later date.
