Chatham County 4-H to host two Christmas events virtually

Pittsboro, NC – The National Gingerbread House Competition™ that is held at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, inspired the Chatham County 4-H to have its own 4-H Gingerbread House Competition. This event is open to children and adults who live in Chatham County.

To follow the guidelines of social distancing due to the pandemic and to help keep everyone safe, this year’s Holly Jolly Gingerbread House offers a photo contest for gingerbread creations. Participants will submit a photo of their gingerbread creation as their entry. These photos will be displayed and judged online.

This competition is open for photo entries from November 16 through December 7, 2020. Winners will be announced on December 18 at 1 p.m. on the 4-H and Cooperative Extension’s Social Media channels.
