Guidelines are included below
BASE:                                                                                                                                                                  

Structure should be constructed on a sturdy base (heavy cardboard, foam core or wood  defendant on weight). If using cardboard, cover base with aluminum foil so that moisture from the icing does not soak into it. BASE SIZE NOT TO EXCEED 15” X 15”

STRUCTURE:                                                                                                                                                                     Structure cannot exceed two feet in height. Single structures with minimal yards are more easily viewed in our display.  Due to the weight of the decorated house, as well as environmental conditions in the display areas, we suggest always building an infrastructure for support. This can be built from foam core or heavy cardboard, using a substantial amount of Royal Icing as “glue”. The combination of heat, moisture and weight will cause them to deteriorate if there is not enough support or icing used.   No battery or electric components should be included in structure.   Any inedible decorative objects included with your entry will NOT be returned at the end of the display.   Use only Royal Icing. We cannot accept structures made with egg or butter icings as they quickly turn rancid and soften causing the structure to disintegrate.   If baking gingerbread from scratch, bake several days before assembling to prevent shrinkage.   Do not use anything on your house that requires refrigeration (such as prepared Jello, etc.)   Use A LOT of Royal Icing to assemble and decorate. Allow each portion to dry and harden before moving.


JUDGING:
They will be Judging on Originality & Creativity, Difficulty, Overall Appearance & Appeal, Precision & Neatness. 

Will have ribbons on 1st, 2nd and 3rd place submissions displays at Christmas in the Camp 11/30/19.



Gingerbread houses should be delivered to Camp Guyasuta McGinnis Education Center on           

 Monday, November 25, 2019 between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.


Join the fun this holiday season. This wonderful camp event is a great opportunity to showcase your talents and receive recognition for your troop, pack or den. We look forward to hearing from you!
