The results are in and this year's 10th annual Fort Morgan Rotary Club Chili/Soup Cook-Off was a chilly success and delightful for all who attended! Congratulations to Gaige Stroh, whose Squash Vibes soup won Grand Prize and $100 cash prize! Dayleen Mitchell and Carol Johnson both won People's Choice awards for their soup and chili and each will receive $75 cash prize. This year's Grand Prize judges were Rotary District 5450 Governor Ray Anderson, Fort Morgan Chamber of Commerce Director Andrew Stieb, and Morgan County Economic Development Director Kristen Clifford-Basil.

This year's event in 2021 marked our 10th year of inviting the public to sample some wonderful chili and soup from community members. We enjoyed some brisk temperatures in the 30's but the sun was shining and the wind was absent, making for a wonderful time with friends and community members.
 
This year we also had the pleasure of having the Rotary district provide a ShelterBox tent for the event so that we could see some of the great things that Rotary does around the world. Rotary purchases these to provide emergency shelter and other aid items to families around the world who have lost their homes to disaster or conflict.
