Tastiest Taco, a benefit for the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund, raised more than $4,300. Proceeds will go toward scholarships for single parents attending school. Tacos Daisy won 45% of the total vote. The trophy, custom designed by Lyons Engraving and Awards, will be held by Tacos Daisy until the Tastiest Taco competition returns next year. Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for single parents earning trade skills certificates, associates or bachelor's degrees.
