Annual gingerbread house competition set

MOORE — Aging Services Inc. is making plans for the fifth annual gingerbread house competition and silent auction.

The event will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard Ave. The event is held in partnership with the Moore Public Library’s Holiday Gala.

The public is welcome to submit a gingerbread house for the competition. Houses can be returned to the maker or included in the silent auction to benefit Aging Services Inc. Funds raised by the event will help to fund the programs and services of Aging Services Inc.

There will be six categories of gingerbread houses: Professional, Corporate, Family, Kit, Adult and Teen. Prizes will be awarded to the winner in each category and there will be a special prize for the Best of Show.

Entries must not exceed 18 inches in height and must be on a base that does not exceed 18 x 18 inches. Entries do not have to be a typical house; entries can be realistic, imaginary, lifelike or fantastical. All entries must be made completely of gingerbread and other edible materials (not limited to just sweets). Candies or food items must be unwrapped. No artificial materials are allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, plastic, Styrofoam and/or wood (with the exception of the baseboard). No toothpicks, sticks, etc. All parts of the structure both inside and out must be 100 percent edible.

Aging Services Inc. has partnered with the Culinary Arts students from Platt College for the past four years in presenting this program. This year Aging Services Inc. also will partner with the Moore Public Library on this event.

Individuals who would like to make a gingerbread house for the event can call Kathleen Wilson at 321-3200. The entry form is available on the ASI website at or at the City of Moore website.
