Mosaic Templars Holiday Contests

- Sericia Cole, Director of Mosaic Templar's Cultural Center, talks with Aaron Nolan about a couple of holiday contests that are coming up that they need your help with.

Holiday Open House/ Say it Ain’t Say’s Sweet Potato Pie Contest Sunday, December 1st 2-5pm

Holiday Open House is a festive and fun opportunity to enjoy a day full of holiday cheer.  Bring the kids to check out some awesome holiday crafts.

This year’s event will feature our 2nd annual “Say It Ain’t Say’s” Sweet Potato Pie Contest, in honor of Little Rock’s black Santa, Robert “Say”

Don’t miss this free opportunity to taste the best sweet potato pies in Arkansas and help us vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The People’s Choice Award will be determined based on the taste tests of all visitors.

2 categories of competition: Amateur and Professional

If you have a competitive pie or you know of a bakery or restaurant in Arkansas that has what it bakes, encourage them to enter the Contest!

Entry forms must be submitted by 4pm November 18th.

There is no cost to enter and the event is free and open to the public, but we ask competitors to donate a toy for the toy drive. 

1st and 2nd prizes in both categories will be determined by a panel of judges including Broadway Joe, Kat Robinson, Pamela Smith and Donna Terrell.

We invite all 6th-12th grade students in Arkansas to submit digital reports about a significant event or individual, past or present, related to the museum’s mission to collect, preserve, interpret, and celebrate Arkansas’s African American history from 1870 to the present, especially in the areas of business, politics, and the arts.

Digital reports can be audio or video and must be 2 minutes or less.

Entries will be judged in two categories: 6th-8th grades, and 9th-12th grades.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three in each category.
