The Montrose Public Library shifts from reading to cooking for the Teen Chopped Challenge.

Teen Chopped is a competition where teams of three teens compete in a cooking competition.

The competition takes place on Thursday, July 7, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Montrose Library meeting room.

Teams can sign up for the competition at the Montrose Public Library reference desk. The public is invited to be a part of the live audience for the competition or, if you consider yourself a culinary expert, be one of the judges.

Advance registration is required and winning teams receive prizes for their culinary excellence.
