Chamber Chili Challenge encourages community to try em’ all

Chili-eaters, chili-makers and basketball fans alike will have the opportunity to enjoy an evening together this coming Friday. 

The Perkins County Chamber of Commerce is hosting their “Chamber Chili Cookoff” this Friday, January 10 at the Perkins County High School during the basketball games. 

Members of the community were encouraged to come forward if they thought they had the best chili recipe. 

Those up for the challenge will be set up in the commons area at the high school Friday night, dishing out what they believe to be the best in the county.

Attendee’s can pay a small admission and enjoy a taste of each and every batch, to then cast their vote, and maybe go back for seconds of their favorite. 

The Chamber Chili Challenge will see three chamber bucks winners; third place wins $25, second place takes $50, and the grand prize, first place chili maker will take home $100! 

The admission charged to the public to test and vote will be $6. Proceeds from this event have been deemed to go towards the “Always for Kids” program at Perkins County Schools. 

This program is a fund the school uses to cover the costs of various needs of their students, ranging from maybe a pair of tennis shoes for track, or the activities fee for a student that wants to participate but is unable to for financial reasons, or help getting an instrument in the hands of a student with the desire to play. 

The Chamber Chili Cookoff will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. this Friday at the high school and any further questions can be directed to Chamber Past President, Michelle Ross at 352-4131 or
