Description

In just a few short weeks we will enter the “most wonderful time of the year” which unfortunately, many of us know as the most overwhelming and stressful time of the year. To help you beat the madness and start the holidays right, on Saturday, December 2, HICC Kingdom Kids will host The Christmas Experience—a fun and interactive event designed to give your family a chance to catch your breath and reclaim the warmth and peace of Christmas.

The Christmas Experience is made up of three separate activities. Your family can register just for one of them or for all three. The three activities that make up The Christmas Experience are: The Manger Project, Gingerbread Creations and Christmas Cookie Contest.

Christmas Cookie Contest is a friendly competition between families. Can you bake a cookie that will wow our judges and win the Ultimate Christmas Cookie Award?

CONTEST RULES


  • Every team must be registered. Only one person on each team needs to buy a registration ticket. After you buy your ticket, please send an email to hicc.kingdomkids@gmail.com with the names and ages of your team members.
  • Baking teams must consist of parents/legal guardians or grandparents and children (up to 15 years old). The process of cookie creation should be a team effort from start to finish. For example: A team cannot consist of a parent and a newborn since the newborn obviously would not be able to help in the baking process.
  • You can make any type of cookie. Each team is allowed to enter 1 type of cookie.
  • Since we will have a People's Choice Award, please bring 3 dozen (36) homemade cookies. Keep 7 cookies whole and break up the rest into smaller pieces.
  • Bring a recipe that includes a list of ingredients, amounts, and directions.
  • Deliver your cookies to the Harvest International Christian Church (HICC) sanctuary at 5:30pm on Saturday, December 2.
  • Your team is responsible for displaying your baking efforts on platters, baskets, gift boxes, hanging from miniature Christmas trees, or any other imaginative way that strikes your fancy.
  • People's Choice voting will begin at 6PM and the Ultimate Christmas Cookie judging will begin at 7PM.
  • Each cookie will be rated by the following factors: presentation, appearance, aroma, texture, and flavor.

CONTEST AWARDS

  • The People's Choice Award includes a trophy, a $25 Target gift card, and Christmas goodies.
  • The Ultimate Christmas Cookie Award includes a trophy, a $50 Target gift card, and Christmas goodies.
