Gingerbread House Contest Rules & Information

Parents can help as "consultants & supervisors".  80% of the work has to be done by students.

Your house must fit on the plate it came on.

Houses must be made out of graham crackers.

You may use additional supplies from home but you must use at least 75% of supplies you were given.

If you need more frosting (to use as glue) or as paint (for different colors) simply mix powdered sugar, water & food coloring until you get the desired consistency.  Use a ziploc bag for piping (or buy canned frosting).

Categories & Prizes:

Grand Prize:  $30.00

2nd Place:  $20.00
3rd Place: $10.00

Best "traditional" gingerbread house: $20.00

Most Original:  $20.00

Pictures must be submitted by midnight on Thanksgiving.

I will post a collage of all of the submissions and assign each house a number (houses will remain anonymous) by Friday night.  Voting ends on Saturday at Midnight.

You will vote via the webpage by submitting the picture number for your top 3 houses, most original & best traditional.  You may only vote once.
