Three area senior students were each presented a $500.00 scholarship on Saturday night during the 10th Annual Iron Horse Chili Cookoff and Feed Scholarship Fundraiser. Receiving the scholarships were Andy Oakland, Fulda, MN; Maggie Malathip, Worthington, MN; and Jenny VandenBosch, Pipestone, MN.

On Saturday night, thirty-one different chilis were submitted by area chili cooks for the Chili Cookoff and Feed. Samples from each crockpot of chili were tasted and analyzed by a panel of six judges (two judges per category) beginning at 4 p.m. Judges for the event were Dave Murpphy, Aaron Conklin, Todd Lee, Justin Wildfeuer, Rick Troje, Bob Baumgardner.

Winning the mild category of the Chili Cookoff was Dennis Paplow. Jeff Weiner was awarded the medium category distinction, and the winner of the hottest chili category was Dan Baerenwald.

Serving of the chilis began at 4:40 p.m. and those in attendance were able to have a voice in which of the 31 chilis was their favorite. The People’s Choice Award went to Fulda’s Easton Laackman.

Over the past ten years, the Iron Horse Motorcycle Club has been able to present at least three $500.00 scholarships per year to area seniors who apply for the scholarship. An essay is submitted by those who apply. In 2012, the Iron Horse Motorcycle Club presented four $500.00 scholarships. The club holds two fundraisers per year to raise the monies for the scholarships: the Iron Horse Chili Cookoff and Feed and the sale of pork-on-a-stick during the Fulda Wood Duck Festival.
