Sixteen students from Calcasieu, Cameron and Beauregard parishes competed in the 2019 Cal-Cam Rice Growers Association Rice Cookoff Sept. 18. at the Port of Lake Charles. The event was held in conjunction with National Rice Month. When the judges put down their forks, they decided Danon Jackson, of Moss Bluff Middle School, had the winning dish with her Seafood Risotto.
