CANTON — TAUNY will be accepting gingerbread house entries for the annual Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Contest and Display from Nov. 29 - Dec. 3 during business hours at The TAUNY Center in Canton.

The theme for this year’s competition “On the Farm” is a tribute to the agricultural aspect of local life in the region. Entries may reflect any aspect of a farm and activity on farms. TAUNY encourages makers to be creative and interpret the theme as they wish.

The Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Display will open to the public and winners will be announced at TAUNY’s annual Holiday Open House on Dec. 7 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Visitors can see the gingerbread houses at The TAUNY Center and submit a vote for the People’s Choice Award through Dec. 21.

The Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Contest and Display entries must be made of gingerbread baked from scratch and be entirely edible. Maximum base size is 20” x 20”. A registration form will include space for a brief description of the gingerbread house and/or a statement from the artist. Entries will be accepted and prizes awarded in four categories: adult (ages 18+), youth (12-17 with no adult help), children (under 12 with minimal adult help), and family/youth/community group. Entries created by groups are encouraged. Interested participants who wish to display their work, but not enter the competition are also welcome. More information is available at tauny.org.
