JUNEAU, Alaska - Ten-year-old Aaron Blust of Juneau is an inspired chef. His salmon dish is getting him and his family a trip to Washington, D.C.

The Juneau Empire ( says Blust is one of the winners of the national Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. The contest was organized by, the United States Department of Education, the United States Department of Agriculture and Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" health initiative.

Parents of children between the ages of 8 and 12 were encouraged to send in their kids' original recipes for a nutritious, delicious lunch. A winner was selected from each state, as well as from the District of Columbia and several U.S. territories.

Blust will represent Alaska at the Kids State Dinner, which the first lady will host at the White House early next week.
