Anderson lawn was crowded on the afternoon of April 14,
2015, with students, music, prizes and lots of chili. The Chili Cook-Off is
quickly becoming a new tradition at HSU. This year there were seven different
chili recipes for the four judges, students, faculty, and staff to sample.
Students were allowed to enter as an individual, team, or
with their associated clubs and organizations. Winners were awarded gift cards
and limited edition “Chili Cook-Off” T-shirts.
Ashley Haas, senior criminal justice major from San Antonio,
said, “It was fun participating in one of HSU’s newest traditions while
representing Alpha Phi Omega. The school and APO have meant so much to me and
the chili cook-off was a fun way to help bring my senior year to a close.”
Awards were given out in three categories. Alpha Iota Omega
took home the Best Presentation Award while Cameron and Lexi’s Team won most
Creative Recipe. The overall Chili Cook-Off champion was Lambda Alpha Tau.
Austin Hennessey, senior psychology major said, “What better
event for college students than one that involves food? The Chili Cook-Off is a
great time for students to really come together and show off our awesome
cooking skills. Winning the Chili-Cook-Off was unexpected, but it’s a great
honor to have been chosen.”
