ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING (Dec. 14, 2019) — Western Wyoming Community College will host the second annual Homecoming Chili Cook-Off in Downtown Rock Springs on Saturday, Feb. 8.

Chili will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Western will accept red or green chili registration forms until Jan. 24, 2020.

Both businesses and individuals in Sweetwater County are invited to enter the Chili Cook-Off to win cash prizes. The contest is free to enter.

Chili must be prepared and cooked in a licensed kitchen, so Western’s dining hall, Mitchell’s, will open its doors to contestants. To schedule time to cook in Western’s kitchen, email Audrey Harton, Western’s Public Relations Specialist at [email protected].

“Last year’s Homecoming Chili Cook-Off was a great success, and Western is always excited to partner with local businesses. It was such a great way for community members, businesses, and the college to work together for a fun day out on the town. We are looking forward to this year’s event and trying more delicious chili,” said Kimberly Emerson, director of Student Marketing and Communications at Western.
