Awards & Prizes
Teams entering the Cast Iron Cook-Off® compete for a number of awards. In addition to the Overall Grand Champion, chefs vie for Best Overall Menu, Best Use of Appalachian Protein, Best Use of Appalachian Value-Added Products, Best Use of Cast Iron, and many other honors.
Each year the awards ceremony also includes presentation of the Pioneer Award, given to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the promotion of tourism for the state. Former first lady Gayle Manchin and former governor Gaston Caperton are among the past recipients.
