The students at Drumheller Valley Secondary School competed in a Gingerbread House building contest.

It was an intense race against the clock as students from DVSS only had hours to complete gingerbread houses to the best of their abilities. The students who took part were nominated on behalf of their peers as each of them worked in groups to flex their creative minds in creating unique gingerbread homes to display within the DVSS Library.gingerbread (1)Winning choice from the panel of judges

"We really wanted to just take a step back and do something fun with our students for the holidays," explained DVSS teacher, Dana Alsafi.

"The 4Club does so much to contribute to the community and we wanted to do something to give back to the students," Alsafi continued. "It's just a bot of fun for all."

Contest winners for the event were Katie Hanik, Jayden Wipf, Karina Morales and Lexi Plante. They designed a log cabin gingerbread house that sported a snow covered roof, Santa Claus in his sleigh and Christmas-sy front yard.

"Through nominations, for students doing good deeds around the school or community, are nominated into this process. It's not a popularity contest in any way. It's completely based on good deeds around the holiday season, spreading joy and positivity."
