Please join us for a reception to celebrate the 11th annual BSA Gingerbread Design Competition & Exhibition! You will be able to view all gingerbread creations, vote for your favorites, and enjoy light refreshments.

The competition theme this year is “Climate Ginger-READY Boston,” an edible exploration of the city’s Climate Ready Boston initiative. This initiative focuses on ensuring Boston will continue to thrive amidst the threat of long-term climate change. We encourage all forms of creative, sustainable, climate-resilient gingerbread designs that speak to the unique challenges that Boston faces.

The reception will include a brief awards ceremony where this year's Gingerbread Jury will hand out Judges' Choice and Honorable Mention Awards. The rest of the awards will be announced online at the close of the close of the exhibition on December 20, 2022.

2022 JURY:

Joe Christo
Managing Director at the Stone Living Lab

Susan C. Blomquist AIA, NOMA, LEED AP

Catherine McCandless
Climate Change & Environmental Planning Project Manager at the City of Boston Environment Department
