For the past couple years here at Morgan, there has been a Gingerbread building contest held by Mrs. Nunan, the Culinary teacher .
Some students work after school until 4 in Mrs. Nunan’s room on their houses. Students have until December 19th to build a gingerbread house completely from scratch. No kits are allowed. Students who want to participate in this contest may work with others. They have to fill out a planning sheet to help create their house. If they let Mrs. Nunan know what supplies they need, she’ll go out to the store and get them. All pieces of the house must be edible. If students choose to use lollipops, they even have to take the stick off and just use the top part. “If you choose to make your house outside of school because you aren’t able to stay after school, you’re allowed to do so,” Mrs. Nunan explained.
She understands that students may have sports or work after school. “I stay after school everyday when I’m able too and work on my gingerbread house, and this is my third year participating in the competition,” explains senior Kate Eveland. “This is my first year participating and I’m feeling pretty good about the way my gingerbread house is turning out.” Says sophomore Connor Crowley.
Voting will be held on the 18th and 19th. Teachers and staff will vote in the Learning Commons where the gingerbread houses will be set up.Good luck to the students that participate!
The winners of this years 2013 gingerbread house compitition are third place winners Jess Acetta and Angela Rienzo, second place winner Krystal Broughton and Angel Buffington, and first place winner Cassidy Sorota and his team.
