Participants are encouraged to get creative and interpret the theme as they wish, using gingerbread to create a scene, a place, an item, or anything else that comes to mind that represents something meaningful or interesting about this year.
Submissions can be dropped off at The TAUNY Center during business hours Friday, November 27th through Tuesday, December 1st. The Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Contest and Display entries must be made of gingerbread baked from scratch and be entirely edible.
Maximum base size is 20″x20.” Entries will be accepted and prizes awarded in four categories: adult (ages 18+), youth (12-17 with no adult help), children (under 12 with minimal adult help), and family/youth/community group. Entries created by groups are encouraged. Interested participants who wish to display their work but not enter the competition are also welcome.
The Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Display will open to the public and winners will be announced on Saturday, December 5th. Visitors can see the gingerbread creations at The TAUNY Center and submit a vote for the People’s Choice Award through December 22nd.
The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, Downtown Canton. For more information or for a registration form, visit TAUNY’s website.
