Gingerbread house deadline is 4 p.m. today
The deadline to enter the Gingerbread House Contest is today. All entries must be dropped off at the Museum of Northwest Colorado by 4 p.m.
The contest is an annual event sponsored by the Downtown Business Association in Craig.
"It sounds like it's going to be bigger and better this year," said Jan Gerber, of the Museum of Northwest Colorado. She said this observation was based on the number of boards requested upon which people build the houses.
Contest rules are as follows:
• Houses must be constructed on the boards provided with entry fee.
• The entire house must be made of edible products. No lights, cardboard, supporting structures or artificial display materials are to be used. Candies must be unwrapped.
• The cost to enter is $6, with the board included. The entry fee is $2 for anyone using a board from a previous year.
• There are three divisions: Adults, children ages 11 to 17 and children 10 and younger.
Entries will be judged today, and results will be posted Saturday. Entries will remain on display through Dec. 20. A first-place and second-place prize will be awarded in each category.
