Cook-Off Rules

Set-up

A booth area will be provided for you. Please provide your own table and any cooking, serving, equipment, or decor you will need. Booths need to be completely set up by 4pm at the latest. We encourage you to set up as much as possible the day before. 


Serving

The event begins at 5pm. Please be ready to start serving at that time. Please be available in the booth to serve food to guests during the event.


Judging

Judging will be open-ballot. Each person attending the event will receive a ballot to vote for their favorite dish. Prizes will be awarded in three categories:

  1. Chili
  2. Gumbo
  3. Open Category (everything else)

You may enter dishes in multiple categories, but please be aware that each dish will need it's own booth and server.


PLEASE PROVIDE ENOUGH FOOD TO SERVE AT LEAST 100 PEOPLE! 

Remember, the more people you serve, the more potential votes you have!


If you have any questions, please email sarah@polr.org

Hang tight while we prepare your form...
