Gingerbread House Competition
Hansel and Gretel, Wait 'Til You See This!


If the witch from Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairytale was around today, she’d leave her crumbly forest digs for this modern gingerbread celebration in a second.  Join United Way California Capital Region certified nonprofit partners, the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter (AIACV) and Sacramento Self Help Housing (SSHH), for their inaugural Gingerbread House Competition.  Pick from three entry categories (professionals pay a $25 entry fee; public and children ages six to 12 enter for nothing) and give it your best shot. 

Once you’ve baked and decorated your edible masterpiece, attach it to a rigid base and take it to the AIA Central Valley Chaper office on 11/30/11 or 12/1/11 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.  Maximum size is 20″ x 20″ For complete details and to enter, go to
