It was a great day for chili, soup, ice carving, and ice skating in Fort Morgan on Saturday the 14th! We had a great turnout and lots of chili and soup to help keep folks warm inside, even if it was cold outside.
Money raised from this event goes to support the Rotary Club of Fort Morgan's youth programs that recognize and strengthen youth in our community, including the Rotary Youth Leadership Award, a scholarship given to middle school  and high school youth that allows them to attend a youth leadership development camp in the summer. In addition, the club recognizes a student each month from the high school and middle school as the club's students of the month and invites them to have lunch with the club, meet community leaders, and practice their public speaking skills by reporting on school events each week. The Rotary club is also hosting an exchange student this year from Brazil, Matheus Cofferri, who is learning about our community and culture while sharing details about his.
The Rotary Club of Fort Morgan wants to thank our sponsors, without whose help this event would not have been possible.

We want to thank County Commissioner Mark Arndt, County Sheriff David Martin, and the Fort Morgan Rotary Club exchange student from Brazil, Matheus Cofferri, for taking time out of their day to taste all of the dishes and come to a consensus on their favorite. Congratulations to our Grand Prize winner, Dayleen Mitchell, who was voted by our esteemed judges to be the best tasting dish overall!
For only $5, the public was able to taste all of the chili and soup entries and also cast a vote for their favorite dish. After the votes were tallied up at the end, the taster's award for Best Soup went to Carol Johnson and the award for Best Chili went to Loren Boyett.
