NEW YORK - Nov. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- The Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment announced at the American Cheese Society Conference in Richmond, Virginia in August that Ann Campbell has won their annual $5,000 cheese scholarship. She hopes to travel to Egypt, Greece, and Italy to further knowledge about the origins of cheese and how they were spread throughout the Mediterranean region and beyond.

The Daphne Zepos Teaching Award (DZTA) is an annual scholarship awarded to a food industry professional to further their learning—and their ability to educate others—about cheese. Winners use the award to travel abroad to learn about the craft of making, aging or selling cheese. This is prize's seventh year. Previous winners have traveled to Spain, France, England, The Netherlands and Switzerland.

To apply, candidates write a brief vision describing what will happen because they earned this award. The award requires that the person have worked in some part of the food industry for three years and have a membership in the American Cheese Society.

About the Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment

The endowment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that funds the annual award. Hundreds of donors have helped make it possible. All the proceeds go towards the annual scholarship.
