WASHINGTON, June 20 (UPI) -- Michelle Obama announced Thursday that 54 young winners of the "Healthy Lunchtime Challenge" will attend a White House dinner in Washington next month.

"Our Kids' State Dinner is one of my favorite events of the year, and the kid chefs who come from around the country never cease to impress and inspire me with their creativity and ingenuity. I'm counting down the days until the winners join me at the White House to celebrate these healthy and delicious meals that kids everywhere will love," Obama said.

The group includes winners from every state, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories. The contest is open to children 8 through 12.

The dinner July 9 will feature a selection of the winning recipes.

The "Healthy Lunchtime Challenge" is co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and Epicurious, a food website created by Conde Nast publications.
