Transcript MAR20 10 For the win: Veteran cookers fire up their grills Houstonian editor Ruth Rodriguez gets a sneak peek of preparations for Day 2 of Frontier Fiesta and finds out that there's more to UH's oldest pastime than pearl snap shirts and live music, (left) The Cavalier Cookers hope to knock out the cook off competition with a garlic and onion brisket marinade. The group ended up winning the cook off's Bob Schamberg award, (middle) Barbecue cooker Ed Rios fires up his grill by noon. This year marks Ed's 14th Frontier Fiesta cook off. (right) Participants start preparing their grills early on Day 2 and are usually the last to leave Fiesta City, as it takes about an hour to get their grills fired up and nearly three to extinguish the fire once the barbecue's done. | Ruth Rodriguez NEW FRONTIERS, OLD TRADITIONS Frontier Fiesta was born on the UH campus in 1940. The organization first gained recognition over 40 years ago when it was featured in LIFE magazine as The Greatest College Show on Earth'. From 1959 to 1992, Frontier Fiesta was defunct but since its return, has attracted more attention than previous decades. Crowds have grown to an attendance of 37,000 students, just about the same number of the entire student body at UH. In fact, every year, Frontier Fiesta transforms a portion of the campus into 'Fiesta City'. The Fiesta City tradition includes a carnival, Family Fun Day, battle of the bands concerts, Broadway variety shows, and a major cook off and bake sale. The three day event filled with numerous activities to participate in and offers cash prizes for winners of the cook off and bake sale Along with their annual Fiesta City showcase, the organization also awards ten scholarships to current students and incoming freshman. Aside from high academic performance, the scholarships pose as a reward to students who demonstrate exceptional efforts through their community. Since 1995, Frontier Fiesta has given $70,000 worth of scholarships. In 2008, Frontier Fiesta gave away a large sum of $10,000 in scholarships. Frontier Fiesta is run entirely by UH students spreading the word on scholarships, community service, and the importance of education to all UH students, faculty, staff, and the city of Houston. 120 • Spring ■ Frontier Fiesta
