Thirteen-year-old Luke Wilder's "Christmas at St. Basil's" gingerbread construction won Best of Show Thursday during the GingerBread Jubilee Design Contest in Medford.

Wilder's and the other 32 edible entries will be auctioned off during the Gala Auction Party at 5:30 tonight at the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater, 23 S.
