The Stark County District Library is accepting entries for its 10th annual Gingerbread House Contest.



The contest is primarily for children, but adult entries are welcome too. To enter, simply decorate a gingerbread house and bring it to the Main Library Children’s Department, 715 Market Ave. N., Canton, by Dec. 4.



Winners will be announced and prizes awarded on Dec. 6 at the annual Light Up Downtown. Entries will be judged based on uniformity of baking, design and construction, decoration and imagination.



Categories include Children’s Creations, Family or Group Projects and People’s Choice. Children in fifth grade or younger may create a house from pre-baked goods such as graham crackers, but contestants older than 10 are asked to bake their own gingerbread.
