Join other Ridge families competing to create the best gingerbread entry. At Home!

The Ridge Family Team wants to bring some Fun and Competition to your COVID-Crazy. We are still going to hold our annual gingerbread contest, but this year, it will be at home only. We encourage you to get your own supplies – we’ll provide a list of suggestions below. Then you can find a time that works for your family to build your gingerbread entry and post a photo for judging on our Facebook Event.

We’re not looking for houses this year; here are this year’s categories for Gingerbread entries:

  1. COVID-Crazy Life
  2. Transportation or vehicle
  3. Meal or food impostor

When you have your entry complete, post a photo in the comments of the Facebook Event by 6 pm on December 6th. Our highly skilled gingerbread judges (aka The Family Team) will choose a winner for each of the categories and we will Go Live at 6:30 to announce the winners.

We’re also giving YOU a chance to be part of the action. Check out all the great gingerbread entries and vote for your favorite with a Like. The entry with the most likes at 6:15 on Dec 6 will win the People’s Choice award. We’ll also announce this winner at 6:30.

Here are some suggested supplies for your gingerbread entry:

  • 2 sleeves of graham crackers
  • 1 can of white frosting
  • Candy canes
  • Starlite mints
  • Spice drops

  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Licorice pull-aparts
