Join the San Juan Builders Association in celebrating the holiday season by entering or just viewing the entries to its first annual gingerbread competition.

Today, Sunday, Dec. 20, is the last day to drop off your gingerbread creations between 11 a.m.-1 p.m at Sundries Court at 260 Spring St. Register to enter this gingerbread house building contest at

Gingerbread creations will be judged by the San Juan Building Association Board.

“We have added a lot of new members, we are in the process of creating a new website for both our members and the public to help them find qualified vendors, contractors and other experts within the housing industry,” SJBA Executive Officer Katie Schmidt said. “Due to COVID, we have not been able to host as many in-person events as we would like so this seemed like a safe and joyful way for the SJBA to spread holiday cheer! And the fact that the contest is centered around ‘building houses’ is a fun bonus!”

Prizes will be awarded on Monday, Dec. 28. There will be a youth (15 and under) and Adult (16+) division. First place will win $500; second place will win $250; and third place will win $100.

Winners for “Community Favorite” and “Most Creative,” and “Best Holiday Spirit” will win $50, each.

Contest rules:

  • Everything must be edible.
  • Gingerbread or graham crackers must be the majority of your structure.
  • You may use a pre-made kit or make your own from scratch.
  • Only one entry per person.
  • Entries must be accompanied by an entry form.

If you do not participate in a gingerbread house’s construction, you can still stop by and see all of the creations and choose your favorite.
