In 1812, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm authored the well known story of “Hansel and Gretel,” which sparked an idea for local families is time to spend together on a project. School officials said this gingerbread adventure was designed to give families a fun time. The gingerbread house contest was held at Mountain Park in December. Any gingerbread structures were welcomed.


Students could make a gingerbread train, a gingerbread lighthouse, a gingerbread barn, a gingerbread church, or a gingerbread cabin, instead of a house although houses were allowed. Students were encouraged to have fun and be creative with this optional project. The gingerbread structures were judged by the Mountain Park staff and were on display in the media center during the week of Dec. 10.


All participants received a framed photo of themselves with their gingerbread creations.The contest winners were William Myers, first place; Colby Callaway, second place and there was a tie for third place between Dylan and Neveah Casstevens.
