The homestyle chili event, organized by the Downers Grove Park District and sanctioned by the International Chili Society, is accepting applications from competitors. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize and an entry to the ICS national finals in California.

Prizes also will be awarded to the second- and third-place finishers and to the winner of the People's Choice Award.

The Chilympics takes place from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 27 at Fishel Park, Grove Street west of Main Street, Downers Grove.

The contest is open to all ages and costs $45 to enter, which includes a $20 membership fee to ICS, a $25 park district registration fee and a commemorative T-shirt. Competitors must cook enough chili for the judges and the People's Choice tasting.

Full information and competitor application forms are available at dgparks.org. The deadline to enter is Sept. 12.
