The eighth annual Chili Cook-Off and Bake-Off to benefit the JHU Campaign for United Way of Central Maryland and the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12, in Levering’s Glass Pavilion on the Homewood campus.

The deadline for entering is 5 p.m. today, Nov. 8. There are no entry fees. To register, go to and click on the Special Events link for a Chili Cook-Off registration flier, or call the Office of Work, Life and Engagement at 443-997-6060.

Guest judges will award prizes for first-, second- and third-place winners, and a People’s Choice Award, based on the popular vote, will be given out in each category.

In addition to sampling the chili and baked goods cooked by colleagues, spectators will be able to purchase lunch—chili, cornbread, dessert and a beverage—for $5.
