First place  - Dena Carlson with "Mom's Arkansas Chili" ($100 prize and her chili on the menu)
Second place - Bryan Fagerholt with "Not So Texas Red" ($75 prize)
Third place - Matthew Lorentzen with "Bowl of Red" ($50 prize)
Overall, Mom's Arkansas Chili received more than 60 orders during the contest (Cups and bowls counted as one vote each). Not So Texas Red received more than 40 orders, and Bowl of Red had 15 orders.
