From STAFF REPORTS

The Introduction to Culinary Arts class at Franklin County High School had its third annual Peppermint House Competition on Dec. 16.

Eight groups of four to six students had two weeks to brainstorm, design and create their peppermint houses. They were given a rubric for time management and teamwork expectations.

Then with direction to build the most unique and creative peppermint house, using 95% food items they dove into creating edible houses.

Students demonstrated skills that they learned throughout the semester such as problem solving, collaborating, communicating efficiently and demonstrating food safety techniques.

They worked to create and build their house by sketching a design, making a shopping list, melting peppermints for their structure and using candy in a unique way to decorate their house.

The winning creation was inspired by the house from the movie, “Home Alone.” It was created by Emily Chitwood, Brady Gayle, Karen Boyd, Elizabeth Wickline and Kaitlyn Malloch.
