Edible Books Contest

January 2, 2019

The library will be holding its first Edible Books Contest on Saturday, January 12.

There is still plenty of time to get creative and come up with an entry!

Edible Books Contest
Saturday, January 12 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
All Ages (3 Age Categories)

Get creative with food and literature! Create something with food to represent a book: you could create a broccoli forest for Where the Wild Things Are, or bake an Elephant and Piggie cake for the Elephant and Piggie books. Or perhaps you’re a fan of Moby Dick – you could decorate a whale-shaped cookie. The only two guidelines are that your entry be made of food and related somehow to books.

There will be three age categories: Kids, Teen, and Adult.

Entries will be displayed in the story room for the day of January 12; drop off your entry when the library opens at 10:00, and pick your entry up when the library closes at 4:00.

There will be in-person paper ballots for voting in the library, and there will be polls (with photos of the entries) for off-site voting via the Facebook page for the Children’s Room at the Harvard Public Library. Online voting will stay open for a week! Voting will decide the winner for each age category – winners get bragging rights and an awesome 1st place ribbon!
