How to Enter the Competition

Form a team of 4 or more people! Please note: The competition is capped at 20 teams.

2. Select the ‘Register’ button on this page and follow the prompts. Only one person needs to register, there will be a spot to include your other team members. The last day to register is Sunday, February 11th.

3. Plan your best chili AND homemade cookie to pair with it!

4. Create a theme for your table! Make your table an experience for everyone who comes by! Example ideas: Luau, Coffee, Football, Farming.

What is EXPECTED OF each team:

  • Bring one chili and one cookie to submit for judging! Please bring enough chili to serve ~200 two ounce cups, and enough cookies to provide a sample for about 200 people.
  • Decorate a 6ft table (table provided) with your chosen theme (you can dress up too!). You can go crazy or keep it simple – but keep in mind ‘Best Overall Theme’ is one of our judging categories!


  • What are the judging categories?
    • Best Overall Chili, Best Overall Cookie, and Best Overall Theme.
  • Who are the judges?
    • We’re keeping these names a secret for now! But don’t worry, you’ll get to meet them after they’ve tried all the chilis. 
  • What if I don’t have someone to make a cookie/the chili/come up with a theme?
    • You don’t have to team up with a GBC attendee! We would LOVE for you to start by asking a neighbor or co-worker to join you!
    • If you can’t find a partner, sign-up and let us know in the comment section of the registration. We will help you find a partner!
