What's the difference between ICS Sanctioned and Community Adult Divisions?
To enter the ICS Division, you must be registered with ICS and must follow specific rules about what your chili can contain; ICS winners earn the right to compete at the World Championship Chili Cookoff.
Any adults can cook in the Community Adult Division and you can make any type of chili; the winner of the Community Adult division earns an automatic entry to compete as an ICS cook at the Yellow Rose of Texas Regional on Sunday.
