Kingsburg’s Brooke Brady took second place in the 12 and younger age category in 2019 and offered some advice as she’s taking part in the contest for several years now. Her entry was inspired by their family’s favorite Christmas character, the Grinch.

“[Contestants] need to be patient and know what to do. You can’t just throw everything on it and have it be a glob of stuff,” she said. “It’s very hard, very had to not eat the candies,” she added.
