On Saturday, November 10, 2018, students from the Culinary Institute of Michigan's Muskegon and Port Huron campuses earned bronze, silver, gold and best in show medals at the ACF Sanctioned Competition held at the CIM Campus in Muskegon, Michigan.

This event assessed the culinary prowess of the competitors in several areas including cooking, patisserie/confectionery, showpieces, mystery basket, ice carving, contemporary hot food and more. Each performance was evaluated against a set national standard via scorecard, rather than against each other.
