Competing in the Chili Bowl
High school FCS will partner with a local restaurant of their choosing and collaborate to create the BEST chili.

Chili for this competition is defined as any kind of protein or combination of proteins (vegetarian-style included) cooked with chili peppers, various spices and other ingredients such as beans and pasta. Teams must cook a minimum of 5 gallons of competition chili. All ingredients must be pre-cooked prior to the event – chili is to be brought “ready-to-eat.” Click here for additional competition information.

Prizes (including cash!) are awarded to the top 3 schools by a professional team of judges. The winning school in the Peoples’ Choice category will also each receive a cash prize.

Registration is $100 per team or a team can sell 30 tickets – Deadline for entry is Friday, October 28, 2016.
