The San Juan Build­ing Asso­ci­a­tion’s annu­al gin­ger­bread house con­test returns this week. Drop off your edi­ble archi­tec­tur­al mas­ter­pieces between noon and 2 p.m., Wednes­day through Sun­day, at the for­mer home of Cask and Schooner — 1 Front St.

The con­test has two divi­sions — one for builders age 15 and younger, and one for builders age 16-plus. Win­ning entries will receive a $500 prize, with $250 for sec­ond place and $100 for third place. Addi­tion­al $50 prizes will be award­ed for the best repli­ca of a local build­ing, the best con­struc­tion site theme, and the entry with the best hol­i­day spir­it. Judg­ing will take place on Thurs­day, Dec. 22.

All entries must be edi­ble and made pri­mar­i­ly from gin­ger­bread or gra­ham crack­ers, although bat­tery lights are allowed. You can cre­ate your own design or use a pre-made kit. The orga­niz­ers will accept only one entry per per­son, and all par­tic­i­pants must fill out an entry form.

For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Katie Schmidt by email.
