The Packwood House Museum invites you to participate in the 1st annual Packwood House Museum Gingerbread House Display and Competition. All houses will be on display in the Kelly Gallery of the Museum from Friday, December 1, through Friday, December 22.
There are a variety of categories in which to enter: Pre-school and Kindergarten; Elementary School (grades 1-5); Middle School (grades 6-8); High School (grades 9-12); Adults 18+; a Family, Group, or Business; and a Culinary category (this would be an individual associated with a culinary class).
Gingerbread for the house may be made from scratch, or purchased pre-made in a kit. Wilton icing must be used to construct the house and adhere decorations, as regular icing will become rancid. A recipe for Wilton icing, competition and design rules may be found under “Museum Exhibits and Events” at www.packwoodhousemuseum.com or by visiting www.packwoodhousemuseum.com/rules_recipe.pdf.
Entries will be judged on overall appearance, originality, difficulty of design and adherence to design.
To participate in this event simply register online at www.packwoodhousemuseum.com/gingerbread.pdf or stop by and register at the Tour Center at The Packwood House Museum 15 North Water Street, Lewisburg. Completed forms may be mailed to 15 North Water Street, Lewisburg, PA 17837, or dropped off at the Museum’s Tour Center.
