Graham crackers, frosting and holiday candy will come together to create prize-winning gingerbread houses in the annual Gingerbread House Contest at the University of Nebraska at Kearney on Thursday, Dec. 6.

The contest will begin at 5 p.m. in the Ponderosa Room, which is located in the Nebraskan Student Union. 

Gingerbread teams can consist of one to eight people, and the house must be built in the 20-minute allotted time. Graham crackers, frosting and spatulas will be provided, but participants must bring their own food coloring, candy and other decorative items. All decorations on the house must be edible, and no preassembled pieces will be allowed.

Past designs have included the White House, an igloo, the UNK bell tower and a lighthouse.

After the contest, the gingerbread houses will be displayed in the Atrium of the Nebraskan Student Union.
