FORT KENT, Maine — The University of Maine at Fort Kent invites area cooks to ready their spoons and kettles for a “hot” contest and a chance to become the “Chili Champ of the St. John Valley.”

The second annual UMFK Chili Cook Off will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 12 noon at the UMFK Sports Center. There will be prizes for first, second and third place for the best chili. Tickets will be sold at the door for all-you-can-eat chili for visitors.

The cost to enter is a $20 donation; all proceeds will benefit Bengals basketball.
