Who hasn’t dreamed of getting in the Taco Bell kitchen and creating the next big thing? Well the folks at Taco Bell has given high school students the chance to do just that! Taco Bell is looking for inspiration from everywhere to shape their menu. And, through the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens they strive to feed teen’s lives with mas, giving them the tools to graduate and job training experiences with that unique Taco Bell twist.

They recently hosted their 5th annual Camp Taco Bell event – where over 100 Southern California Taco Bell teen team members and teens from local Boys & Girls Clubs were challenged to invent a Taco Bell menu item, create a marketing plan, and have the opportunity to sell their product in a restaurant. After two days of hard work, the chance to be a Taco Bell innovator is now a reality for 11 of these teens.

Two teams –from the BGCA of La Habra and Pasadena – will sell their creations at a Taco Bell restaurant on Sat, Aug 16, 9am-1pm PST at the store on 2543 East Slauson Ave, Huntington Park, CA 90255.

The 1st place winners will each receive a $5,000 scholarship to go towards their postsecondary education, and one group grant of $2,500 to go back to a teen-serving organization of their choice. The 2nd place winners will each receive a $2,500 scholarship to go towards their postsecondary education, and one group grant of $1,000 to go back to a teen-serving organization of their choice

All of this is part of Taco Bell’s commitment to feeding people’s lives with más and the goal of the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens, which is to inspire, educate and engage with teens everywhere – knowing that they are our friends, family, customers and our future.
