This contest tested over restaurant safety, proper wait-staff procedures, and the elements of SkillsUsa.  By winning first place, he will move on to the State level of competition.

This is Villegas’ second year competing in this category. He won the Gold in District last year as well, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was unable to compete in State.
