Community School of the Arts (CSA) will hold its third annual Gingerbread Competition from Saturday, December 9 to Sunday, December 17. For over a decade, families have creatively celebrated the holiday season with Community School of the Arts’ Gingerbread House Workshops. This annual event has turned into a beloved family tradition for many Charlotte families, and for the third year in a row, CSA is giving area business a chance to compete for the title of Gingerbread Champion of Charlotte, North Carolina. This contest is a way to show off the creative side of Charlotte businesses.
This year, CSA received entries from six local businesses:
C Design—Sold Out or Hold Out (The Thirsty Beaver)
Garmon & Company—Duke Energy Christmas Center
Gensler—REVVED up for Christmas (NASCAR Hall of Fame)
Wray Ward—Camp North Pole
Wright McGraw Beyer Architects—Dreaming of a Food Truck Friday
Entries are employee-built, entirely edible design replicas of some of Charlotte’s most well-known landmarks and buildings, and will be on display in the lobby of Spirit Square from December 9 through December 17. The public is invited to vote during that time at www.csarts.org/voting for their favorite. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 18 on CSA’s website, www.csarts.org.
The winner of the competition will receive bragging rights and a trophy designed by one of CSA’s visual art faculty members. Last year’s winner was architectural firm Little with their rendition of the Ronald McDonald House.
