The Santa Clarita Public Library and the Friends of the Santa Clarita Public Library are inviting residents to participate in the first annual Gingerbreak House Contest. Participants can deliver their creation to the Valencia Library on Friday, December 6, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Pre-registration is required and must be completed and returned to any Santa Clarita Public Library by mail, email or hand delivered by Wednesday, December 4.
The contest is open to all ages in five categories, including:
- Kids ages 10 and under
- Teens ages 11-17
- Family or group
All entries must be made of edible materials, including, gingerbread, icing, unwrapped candy, cookies, crackers, cereals, pasta, lollipops with paper or plastic sticks, and any other food items. Styrofoam and other support materials are not permitted.
The Gingerbread Houses will be on display to the public for viewing on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8. Each entry will be judged on imagination, construction, uniformity in baking, and overall design. First through third place winners, and the People’s Choice in each category, will be announced at the Valencia Library and at the Literary Arts Festival at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 7.
