The 10th Annual Utah State University College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences Chili Cook-off will be held at the Junction, 1020 East 750 North, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017. The event begins at 5 p.m. and is open to everyone. Unlimited chili (while it lasts), and swing dancing.

Lisa Allen, College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences academic advisor, said the event is a great way to involve students and the community. “This is an event that brings together the Cache Valley community, students and our campus all for a good cause,” Allen said. “Some of the faculty in the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences become pretty competitive when it comes to who has the best chili.”

Anyone is welcome to enter chili in the cook-off for a chance to win prizes and bragging rights. CAAS departments will compete for the coveted “Golden Crockpot” traveling trophy. Admission for USU students is $3, and $5 for all others. For those interested in preparing and bringing chili, the competition entry fee is $5. Local band Sagawich Basin Boys will provide live entertainment to accompany the family friendly fun.
