Now in its seventh year, the Gingerbread Design Competition and Exhibition is a fun and tasty way to highlight the delicious talents of Boston landscape and architecture firms. While challenging designers to explore a new medium, this sweet event also raises funds for community design programs of the BSA Foundation and the Community Design Resource Center.

Vote for your favorite structure while raising funds for the BSA Foundation’s community design programs and the CDRC! The close of the People's Choice Voting will be celebrated at the Awards Reception on December 18. Guest judges will also be announcing their favorite entries at the reception, as well as awarding the Golden Spatula and Golden Whisk to the designs that are most beloved by the public. Donations will continue to be collected through the run of the exhibition to support community design programs.

Vote for your favorite gingerbread here!
