SUGAR LAND, TX (Sept. 11, 2006) – Calling all area artists and chili cooks! Here’s your chance to win big and have fun while you are doing it! Sugar Land Town Square (SLTS) recently added two new events to their fall calendar and needs public participation to help make them a success!

Scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 30, local artists will display their two-dimensional artwork on the Plaza from 4 – 7 p.m. Visitors to the Plaza will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece of artwork and ultimately three winners will be chosen. First place will receive a $250 gift certificate to the retailer of their choice in SLTS; second and third place will receive $150 and $100 gift certificates respectively.

Not an artist? Local residents can also compete for the opportunity to be awarded “Best Chili in Sugar Land” at this year’s chili cook-off. The event will take place on Saturday, October 14 from 5 – 8 p.m. The winning team will receive a $500 gift certificate to a retailer of their choice located in Town Square.

Individuals interested in entering the art show or chili cook-off should visit to fill out an online application and to view contest rules. Entries for the art show must be submitted by Friday, September 22. Chili cook-off entries should be submitted no later than Friday, September 29.

Both events are free, open to the public and take place on the Plaza of Town Square. For more information, visit or call Rita Sosebee at (281) 276-6000.
