Locals once again responded to the Houston Public Library’s Christmas gingerbread house decorating contest.

This is the fourth year the library has offered up the activity.

Residents were asked to vote for their favourites and the results were posted just before the Christmas break.

Photos of the entries were posted and with entries identified by a number only, people were asked to identify their choice by that number.

Here are the results:

* Child – Marcella Dessureault

* Youth – Izzy Bodnar

* Teen – Jade Bodnar

* Adult – Sofia Ebermann

* Family – The Briggs family

* Staff – Jill MacKenzie

Prizes for winners included merchant gift certificates, candy, chocolate and other items, reports Houston Public Library director Sara Lewis.

Winning staff member Jill MacKenzie did not win a prize for her winning creation but can claim bragging rights, Lewis said.

Winners are asked to come to the library to collect their prizes.
