Rose State’s 2nd annual Chili Cook-off was held on Oct.13, in the Student Center.

Students and staff put their cooking skills to use by entering their own original chili for a chance to win prizes, and some student organizations even enter and gained points towards their club, which will go towards their chance to be the “2012 Club of the Year.”

There were 14 different chilis made and out of those 14 the judges (Chris Leland, Coty Cooper, Kent Lashley and Julie Lesko-Bishop) had the difficult task of narrowing it down to five winners.

Nevertheless, there where chilis that prove to be the tastiest and surpassed the competition.

In addition to the cook-off there were many other fun things to participate in such as a chili eating contest, decorate a pumpkin, volleyball, pie a professor, and more.

Clubs even sat up both and sold soda and other beverages to raise money for their groups. The “Pie a Professor” game was part of the “Chili Challenge” that was organized by the Lessons in Leadership class and was a hit with student.

All the proceeds from the game went towards RSC’s “Adopted School Party.

It was an event full of fun, laughter, and we can’t forget chili!
