Area Scouts will be selling tickets for the cook-off for only $5.00 each. When they sell 10 tickets they earn a Scout-O-Rama t-shirt and other memorabilia, plus a portion of the funds go to support their own troop as well as other Caddo Area Council Scouting programs. Chili Cook-off tickets will also be sold at the Ross Perot Scout Service Center at #24 Lynwood drive in Texarkana, Texas and at the show of course.

If you like to cook chili and want to compete in an ICS sanctioned Chili Cook-off event which could lead you to the National Finals, here is your opportunity. Trophies and cash will be awarded for First, Second and Third place, as well as awards for People's Choice, and Best of Show. All cooks will receive a participation award; something they would be proud to display as recognition for supporting scouting. The first place winner will be eligible to compete in the National Championship ICS Chili Cook-off. Cash awards for this SOR event are $200.00 for 1st place, $75.00 for 2nd place and $50.00 for 3rd place.
