The Arts Council of Wayne County welcomes the return of its Gingerbread House Contest and Exhibit this December, and participants will compete for cash prizes totaling more than $500!

“We’re excited to bring back this popular holiday tradition,” said Georgia Dees, Arts Council Executive Director. “It’s a fun, creative way to get into the Christmas spirit, whether individually, or with family, friends or a team of co-workers! The possibilities for the design and decoration are limited only by your imagination!”

RE/MAX Complete is the sponsor of the Gingerbread House competition this year.

All entries will be on display in the Arts Council’s T.A. Loving Gallery from Dec. 6 until Dec. 19. Judging will occur Dec. 6, and winners will be announced during the First Friday exhibit openings that evening.

The four categories and prizes available are:

  1. Ages 6-10 (adult supervision allowed) – 1st – $50, 2nd – $40, 3rd – $30
  2. Ages 11-17 – 1st – $75, 2nd – $50, 3rd – $40
  3. Ages 18 and up – 1st – $150, 2nd – $75, 3rd – $50
