Chili Cook-off to Celebrate Apprentices, Raise Donations for United Way

U of A Facilities Management will hold its first annual Chili Cook-off competition and lunch to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from Nov. 2-8.

Lunch will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 6 at the Carpenter Shop in the Facilities building, at the corner of Razorback Road and Mitchell Street. Lunch will be $5 per person or $4 for past apprentices. It includes chili and/or a hot dog, with fixin’s and a drink. The event ends at 1 p.m., but there’s a good chance the food will run out before then, so first come, first served.

Parking is available in Lot 56.

Everyone is invited to enjoy a chili meal, vote for your favorite chili, and take the  opportunity to make a donation to the U of A United Way.

The winner of the competition gets to keep the Chili Cook-off trophy in their office or shop and earns bragging rights for the year.

Facilities Management has had an apprenticeship program since 1973, with more than 100 employees completing the program in the fields of carpentry, electrical, locksmithing, painting, environmental compliance, heating and air conditioning, boiler operation, plumbing, welding, and sheet metal fabrication. Currently, there are 80 facilities workers who started their careers in the apprenticeship program.
