Bridge teens lay the snacks down in gingerbread competition

It was a battle for Bridge Teen Center architects.

On Dec. 10, 25 teens from The Bridge took part in a competition to build the best gingerbread house. Joining them were 10 employees from CarMax dealerships in Tinley Park and Oak Lawn. 

“This is the eighth competition that we’ve done here,” said Amanda Speakman, who is the senior program associate for The Bridge. “We want to engage students at having fun at Christmas and working with each other.”
