The PEM students will host "The Great Gingerbread Block Build". This will be a team-based contest with a goal of raising funds and awareness for Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie and Area. 


The competition will be based on a time limit of 2 hours and there will be many opportunities to sabotage opponents or purchase items that will help your team stand out. A designated building inspector will monitor what teams do and assign different challenges throughout the competition. The winning house will be decided by a panel of judges. There will be other opportunities for prizes, such as a peoples choice award for the best gingerbread house and a prize for the team that raises the most money. 


We are seeking monetary and in-kind donations and sponsorship for the event with all process going directly to Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie and Area. 



Building a team


We are inviting you to create a team! Each team will consist of 4-5 members with a registration fee of $25 per team member. Teams and gingerbread houses will be judged based on a number of factors; we encourage you to be creative and get into the festive spirit!
