Campus Briefs: Public invited to Chili Challenge

NW Staff

The 7th Annual Chili Challenge will take place on March 25 from 3 – 5:30 p.m. in the Jacobetti commons area and is hosted by NMU’s hospitality management students. Dana Wynn, a senior hospitality management major, is helping lead this year’s event and emphasized that the Chili Challenge isn’t just for students, but open to the whole community. “There are students in the program participating, students outside of the program participating and restaurants from all over the Upper Peninsula participating,” Wynn said. The public is also invited to attend the challenge and taste the different creations. Wynn added that there is no entry fee for those who wish to compete, but there is an admission cost of $4 for anyone who wants to sample the chili. Free cornbread and testing dishes will be supplied by the Culinary Students of NMU (CSNMU). “Anyone can come and try chili from all over the U.P., with many different styles, many different ingredients and possibly something you have never had before. It could be a good snack, lunch or dinner. How can you pass up chili, cornbread and drinks for $4?” For more information about the Chili Challenge, contact Wynn at [email protected], call the NMU School of Technology and Applied Sciences at 227-2190 or e-mail [email protected]
