How do your cookies stack up?

Waynesboro Downtown Development Inc. and Christmas in River City will host a cookie baking contest as a part of the annual Christmas in River City celebration in Downtown Waynesboro.

There are two baking categories – Adolescent (ages 14 to 17) and Amateur (adults – no professionals). Bakers must provide a total of 39 cookies (all home made and all one type). Cookies are provided for the judges, display and guest samples. Entry fee into the contest is two non-perishable food items (for the Blue Ridge Food Pantry).

Entrants must create a “cookie display” using personal items and their cookies. They may include notes about the cookies (history of the recipe, etc) in their display.

Set-up time for the cookies will be on Thursday, Dec. 16, from 3-6 p.m. at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center. Displays must be complete by 6 p.m. Judging will occur the following morning (Dec. 17) at SVAC and will go on display that evening at 5 pm. They will remain on display until the event closes at 7:30 p.m.
