Shane Isom placed first in the Page soup cookoff, Sunday, March 7. Isom's rendition of black bean soup was also named the people's choice winner.

The Page community day Committee hosted a cookoff, Sunday. Ten competitors turned up the heat, entering soups ranging from chicken noodle to chili, zuppa toscana to chipotle sweet potato chili, cheeseburger to black bean soup.

Even a pan - of the plastic variety - featured turtle soup, although most guests passed on the cuisine, preferring to watch the creatures swim in a dishpan.

Judy Heiss made zuppa toscana soup and placed second in the Page soup cookoff, March 7.

Organizer Joni Isom said individuals from Page, Bartlett, O'Neill and Clearwater participated in the event.

Attendees were able to sample each soup and could stuff a dollar bill in the ballot box to vote for their top choice.

A panel of three judges, consisting of Scott Poese of KBRX in O'Neill, Holt County Sheriff's Deputy Don Forker and Page Mayor Rachel Lindquist, had the final word and ranked each soup.

Isom said more than $1,000 was raised from the event. Funds will be used for Page community day, scheduled for Aug. 28.
