Gingerbead Showcase

A gingerbread house competition.

It's time to vote!

Vote for your favorite creation

The Gingerbread Showcase has adapted to the times for this year's holiday season with everyone's safety in mind. The competition has added a new virtual component and the creations will be on display in the storefront window at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, November 30 - December 11, 2020 located at 1200 W. Northern Lights Blvd.


There are two options for voting: virtually (see below) or visiting the ReStore to vote on a ballot. Voters can vote once in each category per day until the competition is over. Each creation will be formally judged but they are also competing for the coveted "People's Choice" award and they need your vote. All donations received from this event, virtually or in-person, help fund future Habitat for Humanity housing projects. Your donations are needed more than ever to ensure that Habitat for Humanity continues to build affordable housing for families in need.

New Winner Announcement Format

As a way to share Gingerbread with our community, the Gingerbread Showcase established a new tradition by introducing the 12 Days of Gingerbread. This series will showcase one creation per day, giving these competitors their moment to shine in lieu of a physical display and awards ceremony. Winners will be released on Facebook, December 1-12th with the 12th day announcing the People's Choice winner. This new tradition will allow competitors and fans to celebrate the 2020 competitors together and keep the community feeling connected while apart.
