The annual Greenville Country Christmas bake-off was held on Friday, Dec. 9 at 5 p.m. at the Greenville/Madison Multipurpose Center. Baked goods were required to be dropped off at 4 p.m. that day.

The bake-off offered many divisions for individuals to enter. For the adult division, individuals could enter the cakes, pies or breads division. Prizes consisted of $50 for first place, $20 for second place and $10 for third place in the adult division.

Youth (ages 12-17) also had the opportunity to participate in the bake-off. Divisions for the youth included candies and cookies. Twenty dollars was awarded to the first place winner, $10 to the second place winner and $5 to the third place winner.

The bake-off judges had to make some tough decisions as so many delicious baked goods were entered. But, after much deliberation, decisions were made. Winners in the breads division consisted of: Holly Herndon, first place; Chiquita Kornegay, second place; and Kerry Cohen, third place. Winners in the cakes division were: Juanita Cason, first place; Regina Vaffall, second place; and Jessica Higginbotham, third place. Winners in the pies division were: Rose Thigpen, first place; Kerry Cohen, second place; and Holly Herndon, third place.

In the cookies division: Isabello Herndon walked away with first place, Ethan Myers with second place and Jake Myers with third place.
