Saturday, 12/13 // 6:30 - 10:00pm // Graduate Pie Party
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13TH, 2014
BBOX, Gateway Building
Pie Party is our annual Holiday Party and Pie Baking Contest. Grab your lucky oven mitt, because the competition is fierce this year!
Graduate students may enter homemade pies in either or both of our two categories, SWEET and SAVORY. Only one entry per category, per student - that's a maximum of two pies per student. Store bought pies will be destroyed on sight.
Contest Registration takes place from 6:30-7:30pm. Submit your ready-to-be-tasted pies live and in-person to the registration table in BBOX. Judging will begin promptly at 7:30 pm. No late entries accepted!!! *Please be ready to tell us if your pie is vegetarian or vegan friendly*
Our well-groomed panel of judges will put it all on the line to sample and rate each of your creations. Prizes will be awarded for Best SWEET Pie, Best SAVORY Pie, and Prettiest Pie (Best Presentation).
The most coveted award - the Grand Champion Trophy - will go the program that has the most and highest-ranking pies. This is calculated by number of entries in relation to program size, and the quality of the individual pies. That's right, participation counts! The winning program will display the Grand Champion Trophy in their program space for one year, earning a year's worth of bragging rights. SEE YOU THERE!
