Age divisions for participation are 4 to 5, 6 to 8, 9 to 12, 13 to 16 years of age, and 17 through adult. The rules are simple – create your own homemade gingerbread house or construct one from a purchased kit embracing the theme Let It Snow. Choose any type of structure with landscaping not to exceed 12” wide x 12” high x 12” long, and all materials (except for a cardboard/wood/plastic base) must be edible!
