Tishomingo Arts Council holding gingerbread house contest

Last year’s adult category winner

Tishomingo Arts Council is celebrating the holidays with its second annual Gingerbread House Contest.
Open to anyone living within 150 miles of Tishomingo County, Mississippi, the contest offers $250 in prizes for both youth and adults.
TAC member Rachel Embrey said, “To enter, all you have to do is send TAC two photos – one of your gingerbread house under construction and another of the finished product. Kit-houses are acceptable, but original designs are encouraged. The construction should be 100% edible. We allow team-entries in both the youth and adult categories.”
TAC said prizes for the contest will include $50 for a youth winner (aged 0-17), $100 for an adult winner (18+) and another $100 prize for a People’s Choice winner, determined by Facebook voting.
The contest, sponsored by Piggly Wiggly and Ace Hardware of Iuka, Mississippi, is being held completely online this year. Entrants should send their photos to TAC either on their Facebook page or by email to by Dec. 26. Facebook voting for People’s Choice winner runs Dec. 27-30, with the winner announced on New Year’s Day.
