The Jefferson Arts Committee has scheduled its 12th annual Gingerbread House Contest as part of its upcoming Christmas in the Village event scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2.

The contest and display will be held in the Milton United Methodist Church located at 316 Dover-Milton Road in Milton/Oak Ridge.

Age divisions for participation are 4-5, 6-8, 9-12, 13-16 years of age, and 17 through adult. The rules are simple — create your own homemade gingerbread house or construct one from a purchased kit with the theme A Family Christmas. 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! Judging will be based on the use of different edible materials, creativity, and originality; and prize ribbons will be awarded in all divisions for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.

To enter, pre-registration is required accompanied by a $5 entry fee with checks made payable to the Jefferson Arts Committee. Entry forms will be available at the Jefferson Township Public Library, Municipal Building Lobby, or Camp Jefferson’s Recreation Department brochure racks. Entry forms can also be printed from www.jeffersonarts.org (Registration Form section in upper right-hand corner of the page) and mailed to Jefferson Arts Committee, Gingerbread House Contest, PO Box 2604, Oak Ridge, NJ 07438 no later than Nov. 25.

All gingerbread houses must be dropped off at the Milton United Methodist Church on Friday evening, Dec. 1 between 6 and 7 p.m. for the judges’ viewing. Prize ribbons will be awarded, and the public can view all entries and winners on Saturday, Dec. 2 at the church between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Participants must pick up their entries no earlier than 4 p.m. but no later than 4:15 p.m. that day.
