Edible Book Festival Rules



The rules are simple: all entries must be made of edible materials, and must be somehow inspired by the title or contents of a book. Each entry can be a reflection, representation, or interpretation. Use your imagination!  Muhlenberg students, faculty, staff, and members of the Allentown community are invited to participate.

Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:

Most Booklike • Most Humorous • Best Student Entry • People’s Choice • Best in Show

A few requirements to ensure an enjoyable Festival:

– Entries should be constructed only of technically EDIBLE substances. (Non-edible support materials such as toothpicks are permitted but must be listed on the registration form).

–Registration takes place on the day of the Festival. There will be an entry form to complete when you bring your submission.

– You are welcome to display your book inspiration [or cover image] alongside your entry.

– Entries must not need any additional care like refrigeration during the festival.

–By entering, you give Trexler Library permission to photograph your entry, (and you, if you are a prize-winning entrant).

–The Trexler Library Edible Book Festival planning committee reserves the right to reject any entry that they believe is unsuitable for the competition. (Nothing in poor taste, please!).

–Entrants and guests are invited to share the tasting of the entries at the end of the Festival, but Trexler Library accepts no responsibility for the food safety of said items. Participants consume at their own risk.
