WILTON — Bakers, get out your ginger, sugar, flour and everything else needed for a holiday construction project.

The Wilton Parks and Recreation Department is having a gingerbread house design contest where children can build a gingerbread house at home, and then submit a photo of it along with their name and age to the Parks and Recreation Department’s Facebook page: facebook.com/wiltonctparksandrec.

A panel of judges will award three winners in the following categories: most creative, most whimsical, and best use of recycled materials.

The winners will then be given a $25 gift card from a local retailer.

People who don’t have a Facebook account may email their photo, name, and age to kregg.zulkeski@wiltonct.org. He will then post the photo on the department’s Facebook page. For questions and comments, call 203-834-6234 or email kregg.zulkeski@wiltonct.org.
