Get Involved through Sponsorship

Event Sponsorship

Sponsorship of the annual ProStart Student Invitational is a great opportunity to be recognized as a leader in supporting the workforce of the next generation.

Teams of ProStart students from across the state study and train compete in three exciting events. The first place teams then move on to compete at the national event, and all participants receive scholarships and other prizes for their participation. Sponsoring the Invitational helps build relationships with many institutions, industry operators and suppliers.

Scholarship Sponsorship

The Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation strives to make postsecondary education accessible to individuals committed to a future in the foodservice and hospitality industry. Scholarships are awarded annually to Illinois graduating high schools seniors, undergraduate students and graduate students to further their foodservice education.
