MTSU’s Homecoming Week continued with the annual Chili Cook-Off on Thursday evening.
Several student organizations, alumni and community groups competed in the cook-off with special recipes. A $5 entry fee allowed patrons to taste all the entries, play games such as corn hole, enter a giveaway and vote for a favorite chili with the proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity.
Entries were judged on flavor, texture and taste as well as overall presentation and school spirit in their displays.
First place in the student organization categories went to Alpha Omicron Pi, with Chi Omega and Area 2 of MTSU Housing taking second and third, respectively.
The winner of the “Alumni and Friends” category was the Sigma Chi Alumni Chapter and the community winner was Aspen Heights, who also the overall winner of the night.
Homecoming Week continued on Friday night with the Raiderstock Music Festival and the Homecoming Parade, tailgate and football game against the University of Alabama Birmingham on Saturday.
