01:00pm - 03:00pm

Join us in celebrating books, art, and culture with this creative contest where student, faculty, and staff participants submit edible art projects made to resemble books, or inspired by a story or book title. The only rule: submissions must be made of edible materials and have something to do with a book(s), in shape or concept. Over the years, “edible books” have been made from cake, breadsticks, chocolate, veggies, and matzo meal. We are looking for good fun and creativity, and maybe a pun, so don't be shy!

There is no fee to enter or attend; however, advance registration for entrants is required. Space is limited, so register today!

Entries will be judged on originality and creativity, skill and construction, visual appeal, taste, and adherence to the book theme. For examples of previous submissions, see our photo gallery from last year.

Members of the Georgetown community are encouraged to attend, ogle the edible art, and vote for their favorite entries. Refreshments will be provided. Certificates and prizes will be awarded in multiple categories by the official judges.

We will reach out to you via email on April 3, 2024, to confirm the details of your submission and provide the specific instructions for the day-of delivery of your art.
