Event Description:
Join the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival for the First Annual Corn Classic : Corn Eating Contest! 

The object of the contest is to eat as many pieces of corn as possible in the allotted time, 5 minutes for men and women and 3 minutes for children 12 and under. 

Corn-testants must complete eating one piece of corn according to rules and evaluated by one of the judges before proceeding to the next piece of corn (disposal buckets will be provided).

Corn-testants must wait until the start signal before eating the corn and once time is called corn-testants must stop eating and place the corn down. Any corn on the cob that has not been consumed 95% of the way will not count. The observers will then count each bucket with the consumed cobs in them to crown a winner.

In the event of a tie, a “corn-off” will be held. Corn-testants will have 1 minute to eat as many ears as possible. The above rules apply to the “corn-off”. 

Vomiting at any time during the competition or within 5 minutes of the corn-test completion will result in immediate disqualification.

Water will be provided.

No additional condiments or utensils may be used. 

Winners will receive a crown, bragging rights, and a trophy!
This contest will take place near the corner of Main and Walnut.
