Kailey Kools needs your vote.

The 11-year-old girl has entered an Uncle Ben’s Beginners Cooking Contest, and if she wins, Detroit Lakes Middle School wins as well.


After Kailey’s mom, Stacey Cresswell, saw an ad that Rachel Ray teamed up with Uncle Ben’s for this contest, they decided to enter. The contest is for parents with children in kindergarten through eighth grade, and they had to submit a three-minute video of the child helping make a dinner that involved the rice.
