Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Competition
Architecture, beauty and creativity are all woven together in one contest each year at the Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Competition. Begun initially as an architectural lesson plan for the Plymouth Christian Academy students, the gingerbread competition has blossomed into a school and community wide contest many look forward to each year during the Christmas season. Building a gingerbread house embodies many skills – from architectural design and geometry to creative use of candy, nuts, and chocolate! And it is all packaged in a very traditional and fun project. Entries have included all sorts of structures – lighthouse, Victorian houses, Noah’s ark, barber shop, and even a house from Dr. Seuss’ Whoville!
The Plymouth Christian Photography Contest, begun in 2007, encourages students to explore their creative talent through the camera lens. The award winning shots will be judged by a photography professional, and all submissions will be displayed at the spring secondary art exhibit. Stay tuned for details and application form for the 2016 contest.
