Gingerbread House Contest

Date: 
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - 12:00am
The holidays are a time to do things that celebrate and create traditions. We all have cherished memories of creating something beautiful to mark this special time of year. We think decorating a gingerbread house is a perfect way to craft new memories, and we’re hoping you’ll join us in celebrating the sweet traditions and beauty of the holiday season by entering our gingerbread house decorating contest!

To enter, pick up a rules/entry form with recipes at the Urbana Regional Library Children's Desk. The gingerbread houses will be judged by friendly library staff.
