Are You Coming to the Edible Book Festival?

ediblebooks_button (1)We hope so! This is the first year that CMLE is co-sponsoring and helping to offer this Edible Book event out beyond the St. Cloud State University (SCSU) campus, and we really hope that some staff and/or end users from area libraries and school media centers join us!

Have you always wondered about doing your own Edible Book event in your setting? Participate in ours to get the lay of the land! Looking for an activity to do in your makerspace? Do an edible book entry for April 14th and register as a group; win a group prize!

Prize categories are shown below.  Which category do you think you might have the best chance in winning?

  • Individuals entries will compete for: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place; based on the popular vote of attendees at the event. Individual prizes will be valued at $100, $80, and $65 respectively!
  • SCSU Student Groups ($50 cash; total value of $85) (2nd place, $75 value)
  • Other Group outside of SCSU Student Groups ($85 value)

You only need to register if you are entering an edible creation in the contest. Spectators are encouraged and welcome, bring your friends and family! Everyone will have two hours to vote for favorites on April 14th.

Activities! Wondering what to do during the judging period?  Come to the Miller Center coffee shop (library lobby) and enjoy book-themed music by the campus radio station, KVSC.  There will also be Creation Station table activities to keep those jitters at bay while we wait for the judging results. Just for fun, try your hands-on-skills in several areas, or deduce book titles in a visual edible book trivia activity. But wait, there is more! View the professional entries from five local bakeries too and enjoy refreshments!
