Gingerbread homes sweet homes

The scent of gum drops and gingerbread filled the back room of Pam Design Interiors on Saturday.

Thirteen local children and adults entered the Downtown Business Association’s gingerbread house contest.

High school culinary arts teacher Cindy Morris and Craig Intermediate School art teacher Martha Laliberte judged the entries.

“It was a riot,” Laliberte said. “We definitely used our teacher skills (to judge).”

After much deliberation and comparison, the judges narrowed the field to the first place winners for the youths younger than 17 and amateur categories.

Brea Sanders, Isadora Hitz and Hannah Kirk of Girl Scout Troop 200 took top prize for the youths, and Diane Calim won the honors for amateurs.

The winners will receive $60 each in Spree Bucks. Each entry will be set in the window of a downtown business with the builder’s name on it.
