The youth must be a single person 14 years old or younger. Online registration reserves a
gingerbread house kit for the youth; a donation is suggested during online registration. Spaces
are limited. Once capacity is reached, names will be added to a waitlist.
Check-in will be on December 7, 2019 between 10-11 a.m. at 296 W. Broad St. Athens, GA
30601. At check-in, the youth will receive a gingerbread house and decorating kit. An adult
must stay with the youth throughout the event. Registered entrants must check in by 11 a.m. or
their reserved kit may be given to someone on the waitlist.
For people on the waitlist, arrive between 11-11:15 to see if a space has opened up. The Guild
cannot notify you ahead of time if a kit is available.
During check-in, the supervising adult will be asked for written permission to photograph or
video record the youth, the adult, and the house decorating for promotional purposes. Adults
do not have to agree to have likenesses used by the Guild to have the youth participate.
This event is intended for young people to be creative. An adult may supervise, but the
intention is for the youth to do the decorating. Some candy and decorations are provided in the
house kit, and entrants are welcome to bring their own candy and decorations.
After the party, the decorated houses will be displayed to the public until Sunday, December 8,
2019 at 3 p.m.
Post Display House Pickup
Entrants may pick up their houses no earlier than December 8, 2019 at 3:15 p.m. and complete
their pick up by December 8 at 5 p.m. All houses not picked up by these allotted times will

Film Release Notification
The adult who registers the youth as an entrant recognizes that photography and video
recording may be occurring throughout the event to be used as promotional material for the
Guild and the Annual Gingerbread Competition. During check-in, the Guild will ask for written
permission to photograph and use the images of the entrant, the adult, the house decorating,
and those likenesses for promotional use. Participation is not dependent on agreement to have
likenesses used by the Guild.
