Carlsbad CA— Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort invites local elementary schools to participate in its first annual Gingerbread House Making Contest. The contest is part of the hotel’s line-up of special holiday events and will reward the winning school’s PTA with $350 to use toward school programming, supplies or activities.
Each school that participates receives a $50 stipend from the hotel to use toward building supplies. The project can be supervised by an adult, but design and build must be done primarily by students. Completed gingerbread houses must be delivered to the hotel by December 17 when they will go on display for voting. The public is invited to stop by the hotel between December 17 and 23 to preview the student creations and vote for their favorite gingerbread house.
The school that receives the most votes will earn the grand prize of $350; second place earns $150. To participate, schools should contact Concierge, Allyson Evers, at 760-683-5408 or Allyson.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gingerbread House Contest is part of Hilton Carlsbad’s festive line-up of holiday events. Each evening from 6 to 8 p.m. between December 18 and 23, the community is invited to visit the hotel for fun holiday activities including a performance by Carlsbad High School Choir, cookie decorating, holiday movie night, ornament making and story time with hot cocoa.
