Chili, anyone?



Tonight we're having a Chili Cookoff at the school. A team of four of us has been busy organizing this for about 6 weeks :) We have 12 staff members cooking chili, and the kids and their families are going to pay to taste the chili and vote for their favorites. The money raised will go to our school's playground fund. We were also able to get some great prizes for first, second and third place - and there's a prize for the chili that gets the least votes, too!!

Love the idea of the chili getting the least amount of votes getting a prize too.

Hope you raise tons of money.

This is a great idea to do in the "chilly" winter months! I hope you raise a lot of money!

My DH judges the chili contest at our state fair each year. He's one of several judges...no expert on chili; he just loves it! lol
