The third annual Cardinal Chili Cool-off will take place Feb. 8 at Canfield High School, 100 Cardinal Drive, in the cafeteria. There will be four categories; hot and spicy, thick and hearty, unconventional and people’s choice. The judges will award a $20 cash prize and a trophy to the winner in each category. Once the judging is complete, the chili dinner will be open for everyone to try.
The deadline for entry is Jan. 18. Each chili entrant also will receive two free tickets to the chili cook-off dinner that will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Menu includes chili, cornbread, Italian bread, crackers, dessert and a choice of beverage. All entrants must arrange to have their roaster picked up by 6:30 p.m., otherwise it will be in the cafeteria all weekend.
