ATKINSON — The tweens and teens in grades 5-12 are invited to participate in a Sweet Contest on Tues., February 26, from 6:30-7:45 p.m. The ‘Sweet Contest’ rules are fairly simple. You can make anything sweet (candy, cookies, cake, smoothies, etc). The creation has to be primarily made in the library and you can use the library microwave in the making of your creation if necessary. If you need to do a small amount prep at home that is acceptable, but note that the more that is done in front of the judges the better. You may bring your own blender or other tools you may need. (Translation: Have everything you need because it is unlikely we will.) You have thirty minutes to create your entry so practicing at home first as to how long it will take you is always the best idea. You must work alone without parental help or a partner. How much is done here and your creativity count a lot! Use a theme and build off of that to pump up your presentation score.

The judges will use presentation, creativity, and tastiness as their criteria and rate each category on a scale of 1-5. At the end, the highest score wins a prize. If there are at least ten entries there will be a runner-up prize. The judges will not allow a tie. After the judging is over, you’ll be able to sample your competitor’s creations while they sample yours. Please make enough for at least a dozen samples. Registration is required. Invite your friends to compete-they do not have to be residents, but they need to register just like you do. Let’s see who is the king or queen of sweets!

Grades 2 and up are invited to try their hands at ‘Creative Candle Making’ that will be taking place on Wed., February 27, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. Our guest, Carolyn Nenart, from the Wenham Museum will be giving a candle making demonstration and tutorial for registered children. Participants will learn to make dipping candles and ice candles. Join in the fun with Miss Celeste and share in the art of candle making. Register before the class is closed. Seating is limited.
