NAGA CHILLI EATING COMPETITION AT HORNBILL FESTIVAL 2010
The first ‘Naga Chilli Eating Competition’ will be held during the Hornbill Festival this year, which is on the 6th of December (Monday), 2010 in the Heritage Village, Kisama at 12:30 PM. This event has been managed by XL Nagaland under the aegis of the Tourism Department, Government of Nagaland. The interesting feature of this event is that it has been decided to involve all the Tribal Hohos of Nagaland. This event has been organized with the sole objective of promoting the Naga Chilli, which has already received rave reviews around the globe. Further promotion through such an event will not only put Nagaland into the horticultural map of the world and help the local farmers, but also boost Eco-tourism in the state. With this objective in mind, all the respective Tribal Hohos are requested to send two participants each for the competition, along with one Tribal representative.
Registration of the participants will be held on the 5th of December (Sunday) at the Heritage (Old D.C. Bungalow) at 1:00 PM. During registration, thorough deliberations will be made on the safety guidelines of the competition and the rules and regulations. So the participants are requested to report on this date without fail.
The winner of the competition will receive a cash award of Rs. 10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand only). For more information, interested persons may contact the organizers @ 9856008999/ 9774009529 or log on to www.xlnagaland.com.
