How to get Rachael Ray to pay for your culinary school tuition

Want to go to culinary school? Here's how to get Rachael Ray to pick up the tab

Thinking about going to culinary school? Rachael Ray wants to pick up the tab.

In addition to loving dogs, making "e.v.o.o." a household term and supplying families across the country with brightly colored spatulas and mixing bowls at Target, Ray wants to pay for one lucky winner to go to culinary school. 

The Food Network star and talk show host launched a Tuition Competition, which includes a full ride to the Professional Culinary Arts -- with Externship Program at the International Culinary Center in New York City. 

If the school sounds familiar, that's because some of the country's most famous chefs, including David Chang and Bobby Flay, are alums. 

To enter, upload a video of yourself cooking your favorite recipe and include why you want a fresh start. The video should also include what you're up to now and how going to culinary school could change your life. Make sure the video is no longer than 5 minutes. 

The top three finalists will go to New York City to compete for the grand prize at Ray's studio. 

In addition to the culinary school tuition, the contest winner will also receive a culinary trip to Cancun, Mexico, and a Rachael Ray kitchen merchandise package including cookware, bakeware and tableware. 

Contestants have until March 23 to enter.
