All TAHS students and staff are eligible to enter the second annual Christmas Cookie Contest. Enter by November 26, 2019.

Last year the Eagle Eye held it’s first ever contest to see who could bake the best Christmas cookies at Tyrone Area High School.

Last year’s winner was ninth grade English teacher Karissa Budny  (Click link to see her winning recipe).

This year we are holding the contest again, but we are raising the stakes with some “sweet” prizes from our new sponsor, Tyrone’s own Bake Shop Bakes!

Legendary baker and former TAHS school nurse Julie Patton will also return as a judge, as well as expert bakers from Bake Shop Bakes.

Here is all you need to know about this year’s contest:

  • What: A festive contest to find the best cookie baker at Tyrone Area High School.
  • Who: TAHS students in grades 9-12 as well as teachers and staff are eligible to enter. Students may enter as an individual or a “team” of two or three students.
  • When: Fill out an entry form below by December 2nd.  Judging week will be December 9th-13th. After we receive your entry form we will give you a day to bring in one half-dozen of your best homemade cookies and a photo of you baking them!
