This could be as easy as just showing up
Everything. Plan on making a pretty fair amount of hot sauce. You'll need to be able to supply enough hot sauce for each judge to have a sample and for attendees to also be able to try. We have no idea how many attendees to expect. You are welcome to sell bottles of your hot sauce.
There will be a $20 fee per hot sauce entered. This will be paid on the morning of the event.
This year we'll be providing tables (and maybe chairs) for everyone entering the contest. We won't really know where any specific hot sauces will be setup until we actually start setting up on the morning of the contest
Anytime. Here's what we need.
NOTE THE ENTER HERE BUTTON BELOW WILL SEND YOUR EMAIL TO:
INFO@STCROIXSCUBA.COM We're working on our own email but so far haven't gotten that setup correctly. (Ed @ SCUBA will receive your entry email)
Each entry will be judged by a panel of at least 5 judges and will be scored from 1-10 on these 5 categories:
The highest average score (total points scored divided by the number of judges) will be the winner and will receive a $500 cash award.
Second place will will $200
Third place will $100
There will also be a People’s Choice Award. Each paid entrant will receive a ballot form. They can choose their favorite hot sauce and return the ballot to the entry desk. Whoever gets the most votes wins a People's Choice Trophy.
Because we freakin' love hot sauce and we're really really tired of not being able to do anything for a couple of years. We're not professional promoters and we've never done anything like this before other than judging and entering past contests. We want to have some fun and raise a few bucks for an amazing cause. 100% of the entry and attendee fees will go Project Promise VI.
