Western Annual Homecoming Chili Cook-Off Right Around the Corner

It’s not too late to register your prized recipe for the Western Wyoming Community College annual Homecoming Chili Cook-off!

Community members are invited to stroll around Downtown Rock Springs businesses and sample chili made by amateur and professional contestants.

The chili will be judged by Mayor Tim KaumoClifford Wittstruck, Western’s Vice President for Student Learning, and a local Chef. The public will also have their say, as Western has added a “people’s choice” category as requested.  

Western will provide sticker cards for attendees, which they can take to different chili locations. Once an attendee tries six chilies, and gets six stickers, they can enter a drawing to win:

  • iPad
  • Amazon Gift Cards
  • Gift baskets donated by Downtown Rock Springs (need not be present to win).  

The Homecoming Chili Cook-Off also features a coloring contest, face painting, and a chance to meet Thunder the Mascot.

To enter the coloring contest: Visit www.westernwyoming.edu, under “announcements”, download the picture, color it, and bring it to the Chili Cook-Off. Participants can submit their pictures to either Thunder the Mascot, at the face painting booth, or at the basketball games in Rushmore Gym following the Chili Cook-Off. Winners will be announced the week after Homecoming on social media.  

The Homecoming Chili Cook-Off is a fantastic event that we have seen grow each year. We love partnering with our local businesses in an event that brings our community together. We hope to see everyone in the Rushmore Gym after the event to cheer on our Mustangs.
