Join us for the second part of our Ultimate Gingerbread House Design Competition as we unveil and display the Gingerbread Houses at The Center for Architecture and Design! Due to the ongoing public health crisis it will be held on Zoom.

We ask our design teams to compete in fundraising for our AIA Baltimore/BAF scholarships. Whomever raises the most can participate as a judge in 2021!

Proceeds of the event, including sponsorship and registration fees, will be donated to AIA Baltimore and Baltimore Architecture Foundation scholarship programs for students of architecture at Morgan State University, and Maryland community colleges and Universities. Proceeds also support Future Architects Resources/Kids In Design, programs for underserved middle and high school students to encourage career opportunities in architecture, design, and construction, and major BAF programs like Doors Open Baltimore.

Registration to participate in making a gingerbread house: $100 (per team)

Emerging Professional Registration: $50
