NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Ella Petitto, the 13-year-old Fontainebleau Junior High student who impressed News with a Twist hosts with her own version of maque choux, took home the big prize on Food Network's "Chopped Junior."

Petitto is the second student from the North Shore school to take home the top honors on the popular Food Network show. She's now $10,000 richer with the grand prize.

Emily Roche, also a Fontainebleau student, won the popular show earlier this year.
