MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The Mahopac High School German Club held its annual gingerbread house contest last month, resulting in a lot of cool, interesting and delicious architecture. Teams were created for the competition, requiring at least one German Club member per team. The students had to construct their houses—not always made of gingerbread, the edible homes displayed everything from graham crackers to pretzel logs—in just 90 minutes. Judges awarded winners in two categories: traditional and creative. Although there was no cost to enter the competition, students were asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to a local food pantry.
