TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Six different army companies from the Midwest Region took to the kitchen on Saturday to compete in the Phillip A. Connelly awards program.

The purpose of the event is to promote and improve army food service throughout the army and the awards program encourages and recognizes the work of high performing units.

Officials said it helps promote a bond between those that work in the kitchen.

“This is their first time winning the state competition, so for us getting to compete in the regional’s is something that we really look forward to,” stated Captain Jessica Cates, Commander Fox Company 113.

The first competition took place in March of 1968.

The winner of the District 4 Regional competition will head to compete against the other regional winners at the national competition. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
