Chili Cook-Off 2021

The public is invited to attend the 2021 City of Osawatomie Chili Cook-Off benefitting the Osawatomie Ministerial Association!

Like we did last year, each department within the City of Osawatomie’s organization (Public Works, Police Department, Fire Department, Admin Offices, Building and Codes, etc.) will submit their best batch of chili alongside a $20 entry fee that will be donated to the Osawatomie Ministerial Association.

A panel of judges will taste test each batch and judge them on COLOR, HEAT, TEXTURE, AROMA, and overall FLAVOR. The Judge’s Choice winner will take home the traveling Chili Champion Trophy!

And from 12:00pm to 1:00pm the public is invited to come do a free taste test of all the submitted recipes and use their pocketbooks to vote for the People’s Choice Award. Simply drop a dollar (or $5!) in the jar for your favorite batch and whichever recipe bags the most bucks gets the People’s Choice trophy. All money raised in the cash vote gets donated to the Ministeral Association!

Last year we raised $503 for the Ministerial Association to help in their charitable outreach efforts in our community. Do you think we can double that in 2021?
