Janie is a fourth-grader at the McCarthy School, and she loves to cook.
Mom Julie Crocker-Wilson tells Peabody Patch her daughter is using is a family favorite to try and win $30,000 for her elementary school to get a cafeteria makeover.
The contest, Ben's Beginners, is run by Uncle Ben's and Rachael Ray. Parents are encouraged to film a video with their child cooking up a recipe using a brand rice product. In this case, Janie explains how she makes chicken and a biscuit.
There are prizes for school participation, finalists, the runner-up and the grand prize. In addition to the $30,000 and other cash prizes, there's also a chance at a guest spot on Rachael Ray's TV show.
