Aging Services Inc. is making plans for the 4th Annual Gingerbread House Competition Event and Silent Auction.

The event will be held at the Moore Public Library, 225 S Howard, on Friday, Dec. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is held in partnership with the Moore Public Library’s Holiday Gala .

The general public is welcome to submit a gingerbread house for the competition. The houses can be returned to the maker or included in the silent auction to benefit Aging Services Inc.

The funds raised by this event will help to fund the programs and services of Aging Services Inc. There will be six categories of gingerbread houses: Professional, Corporate, Family, Kit, Adult, and Teen.

Prizes will be awarded to the winner in each category and there will be a special prize for the Best of Show.

Entries must not exceed 18 inches in height and must be on a base that does not exceed 18” x 18”. Entries do not have to be a typical house; entries can be realistic, imaginary, lifelike or fantastical.

All entries must be made completely of ginger bread and other edible materials (not limited to just sweets). Candies or food items must be unwrapped. No artificial materials are allowed.

This includes but is not limited to plastic, Styrofoam, and/or wood (with the exception of the baseboard). No toothpicks, sticks, etc. All parts of the structure both inside and out must be 100 percent edible.

Aging Services Inc. has partnered with the Culinary Arts students from Platt College for the past three years in presenting this program. This year Aging Services Inc. will also be partnering with the Moore Public Library on this event.
