Thank you to everyone who helped with contributions, set up, and cleaning. Each helping hand made the task that much simpler.

We also extend a huge thanks to Dr. Matt Bohm and students Dakota Foust and Elijah Horst from the MakerSpace Lab, who oversaw the creation and production of the fantastic 3D-printed chili trophies for the event.

We could not have done this without your collective, gracious, and enthusiastic participation. Congratulations to all!
