7th Annual Awareness Washington County Chili Cook-Off

The Awareness Washington County Board of Directors announced that the 7th Annual Chili Cook Off will be held again this year on March 9 from 4-7 pm at Southern Hills Church.

The popular community event will feature a variety of chilis, homemade dessert at auction, children’s activities, a silent auction and the always popular bag raffles.

Chaired by Marji Morris and assisted by AWC Board members Shawnda Keltner and Nicole Purlee, the cook off offers cash prizes for the judged best red chili, best judged white chili, best decorated booth and the People’s Choice winner.

Several teams have already signed up. There is space for 14 teams, so interested chili chefs should contact Marji Morris at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 812-216-6505 for an entry form and more information.

Morris predicts a large crowd again this year. “Our Chili Cook Off has turned into a big social event as well as an opportunity to taste a large variety of chilis.”

“Business owners and candidates for office should definitely sign up for a booth,” Morris said. “This is a great way to get your company or yourself in front of the public for only the cost of three gallons of chili. But I recommend signing up soon as the number of booths is limited,” she continued.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Jalapeno sponsorship is $500 or more, Hot is $250 or more, and Spicy is $100. The sponsorship will help adults in the community become more confident and knowledgeable in their lives as servant leaders. All contributors will be recognized both at the event and after the event through local media and on our social media sites.
