It’s the yuletide campus contest you’ve been waiting for, especially if you enjoy holiday baking and decorating competitions. Many Huskers will try…yet ONLY ONE can triumph in this all-out holiday battle spectacular. Put on your game face and be ready to get crafty.

Student contestants compete through three rounds of competition, with a number of contestants being eliminated after each round, until a single contestant is declared the winner. All contest supplies are provided.

This event is free and open to UNL students with Event Pass.
Participants get to keep their creations from Rounds 1 & 2.
