NILES - The holiday season is a bit sweeter at Brandywine's Bell Education Center as 31 students worked to create gingerbread houses.
Hoke added that the competition gets the school ready for the holiday season and it lets the students creativity shine through, which is something they don't often get to do.
The completed houses were judged by Gary Rider, superintendent of the Brandywine Community Schools and the office staff at the Bell Education Center.
First place in this year's competition went to Samantha Barnes and Jesse Nichols for their two story Christmas castle creation.
Classmates Kamden Bestle and Matt Ottinger took the second place position with their cottage with its own basketball court entry.
