Storyline

Bullied high school student Tommy (Daniel Flaherty) is suddenly befriended by his chief tormentor, Matt (Kenton Duty), the school's most popular student and star athlete. Tommy is suspicious, but is forced to accept the awkward friendship in order to enter a cooking contest with a big prize. And besides, it's so much easier to impress his crush, Sarah (Katherine McNamara), when he's not getting beat up by Matt and his team. As the cooking contest heats up, Sarah sniffs out a conspiracy, but nobody wants to hear about it. Can Tommy trust his budding friendship with Matt or is it all a huge joke on him?

Contest:: Powerful Messages for Many Audiences
10 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely well- written movie that sends powerful messages about bullying, family love, and friendship. Contest does a terrific job presenting an anti-bully message in a way that audiences of all ages can related to. A wonderful and talented cast who portray the characters they play in a way that engages the audience throughout the twists and turns of the story. Tommy's grandmother a quiet and strong woman is a powerful role model of love, simplicity, and forgiveness.

Contest is a truly an enjoyable and well done movie in all respects (i.e. writing, acting, and the unique way the anti -bullying and other messages are portrayed).
