UNK students imagine, build and decorate gingerbread houses at annual contest

Sixteen student teams participated in Loper Programming and Activities Council’s annual gingerbread house competition Thursday night at the Nebraskan Student Union.

Students and staff judged the creations on quality, originality/creativity and overall effect. Teams were required to make every part of their structures edible and they could not be constructed outside the 30-minute competition time. LPAC provided frosting and graham crackers. Participants brought their own embellishments.

Winning teams were:
1st place and $150 – HGTV’s Nutty Creationz
2nd place and $100 – Grinch Don’t Kill My Vibe
3rd place and $50 – Rebels Without a Claus

LPAC also provided a snow globe for students to step into and get their pictures taken while they waited for competition results.
