You are what you eat, but you are also what you read.
Sigma Tau Delta’s Edible Book Contest, which took place on Tuesday, Nov. 15 gave students the chance to show off both their creativity and help with a good cause. The $2 entry fee went to the Lumpkin Country Literacy Coalition, which helps teach Lumpkin County citizens, both young and old, to read.
The only rules for the contest were that you had to be creative and that your book had to be mostly edible.
This year’s contest had 16 entries, and while no overall winner was chosen, there were four categories in which winners were chosen:
- Best Visual Representation: Kat Bryant for her “Hunger Games” cupcakes.
- Most Creative: Kyle Truelove for “The Pitcher of Dorian Gray.”
- Best Verbal Representation: Anna Braswell for “Taming of the Shroom” display.
Two people’s choice awards winner were chosen: Cortney Evans for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” cupcake and candy creation, and Leanna Purcell for “Pair of Dice Lost.”
