Things like this happen to food when kids are in charge, and that's what Tony Roma's Famous for Ribs restaurants did with a recent art contest.
Schools in the vicinity of the four Hawaii Tony Roma's were invited to have their students illustrate the restaurant's keiki menu items: ribs, chicken "feengas," burgers-in-a-basket, barbecued chicken and the Roma jumbo hotdog.
First-place winners claimed iMac computers for their schools and $200 Sports Authority gift certificates for themselves. Winning entries will be displayed at the restaurants through the year.
