Hannah Skalicky started helping her dad pack peaches into boxes at age 3. Before long, she was flipping peach pancakes at the Fort Collins Peach Festival.

So when 10-year-old Hannah learned about first lady Michelle Obama's Healthy Lunchtime Challenge cooking contest only a few days before entries were due, she naturally turned to peaches.

The Denver Post reports that the resulting recipe, Hannah's Sweet and Savory Chicken and Peaches, was chosen as the winning Colorado entry.

The recipe will appear alongside dishes created by 55 other kids, representing all U.S. states, five territories and the District of Columbia, in a printable cookbook on the PBS website. The prize also includes a July 14 trip to the White House and a meal with First Lady Michelle Obama.
