Gingerbread house contest


Miss Grayslake, working with Junior Miss Grayslake, Little Miss Grayslake and Tiny Miss Grayslake, are creating a gingerbread house contest to benefit charity. Contestants are invited to build a house to be displayed at the Grayslake Heritage Center & Museum, 164 Hawley St., the last two weeks in December. The houses must be 95 percent edible and should not exceed one square foot, including the base. Contestants can embellish their designs with candy and sweets. Contestants are asked to make a donation of nonperishable food items to the PLAN Food Pantry. Email grayslakequeens2012@aol.com to register, as space is limited. Entries must be delivered to the museum on Dec. 15 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Those unable to make the drop off date can make alternate arrangements with organizers. The public can view the entries Wednesdays to Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m. through Dec. 29. Direct questions to grayslakequeens2012@aol.com.
