We are very excited to provide objective judging by using the double blind style of judging that we introduced seven years ago. Chili entries are collected from teams in unidentified containers, labeled randomly with letters and taken to the judging area. Sealed envelopes contain the team ID without names attached.
The Castro Valley Chili Cook Off will use two rounds of judging to ensure accurate results.
Separately, by popular demand, we continue to also award the People’s Choice award to the team that collects the most tasting tickets.
If you haven’t entered the contest in a few years, this is the year for you to return!
Apart from being crowned the King or Queen of Castro Valley Chili, and all the bragging rights that go along with such a title, check out these wonderful prizes:
1st Place: $500
2nd Place: $200
3rd Place: $100
Best Booth Decoration: $100
