Public votes are submitted by a voluntary donation to Habitat Anchorage in three categories; Professional, Amateur and People’s Choice.  100% of all donations support Habitat’s efforts to make decent, affordable homeownership available to local families in need. Winners in Professional, Amateur and People’s Choice categories will be announced following the event.

Interested in showcasing your custom made gingerbread house?

This year’s theme is… CELEBRATING ALASKA!  What does Alaska mean to you?  Its people, its buildings, its landscapes, its iconic symbols? It’s an opportunity to get creative and interpret this theme any way imaginable! Gingerbread creations are to be imagined and worked to interpret this theme freely. Both the interpretation of the theme and how clearly it is expressed will contribute towards the points awarded by the judges.
