Feats of Gingerbread

A Holiday Challenge

Build a marvel of gingerbread engineering and help charities across Canada

This holiday season, Engineers Canada is challenging the engineering community to give back by creating Feats of Gingerbread for their favourite charities.

Gingerbread for good...

Here’s how it works. Raise a minimum of $500 for a charity of your choice. Once you’ve done that, you’re eligible to design and build a gingerbread marvel and go toe-to-toe with other creations from across the country. But here’s the icing on the… house: Engineers Canada will match the donation of the team with the most votes up to a maximum of $10,000. The more you raise, the more we give!

And the winner is...

Congratulations to the Northern Gingerbread(wo)men for claiming their place as the 2018 Greatest Feat of Gingerbread. Engineers Canada is excited to match their $5,201 donation to Food Rescue Yellowknife. Of course, everyone wins when it comes to sharing the holiday spirit. Thank you to all the teams who pledged donations, to those who contributed to their campaigns, and to everyone who took the time to vote over the past two weeks. Teams from across Canada rose to the challenge, and together have raised over $20,000 for charity.
