The 2013 Ridgeview Middle School Chili Cook-off will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 at 4241 Rudy Road.

The event, sponsored by the Ridgeview PTA, will include a juried competition in which a panel of judges will rate chili entries based on flavor, aroma and texture. A people's choice competition also will be held, allowing attendees to choose their favorite chili. Prizes will be awarded for both categories.

Those who wish to enter can go to and register, designating the group to be represented (drama, art, band, etc.) Chili should be brought to the school at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event.

Cost to eat is $5 per person, $20 per family. All proceeds benefit the Ridgeview PTA and the programs it sponsors.
