The "Say It Ain't Says" sweet potato pie baking contest returns to the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center on Sunday, Dec. 7, for the third year in a row as part of its Holiday Open House festivities. The museum asks, "Do you have what it bakes" to bake a pie as good as Say McIntosh's? Give your answer by 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17. Entry is free with a toy for the "Stop the Violence" toy drive. The event runs 2-5 p.m.

Go here for an application form. A panel of celebrity judges will decide winners in professional and amateur categories, basing the awards on taste, presentation, creativity, crust and overall. The public may also vote for a "People's Choice" award. Last year's "People's Choice" winner was Sondra Strong, professional winners (first and second place) were Sweet Love and Latrice Catering and Design, and amateurs (first and second) were Michelle R. Smith and Kamiya Merrick. 

The contest celebrates Robert "Say" McIntosh, activist, restaurateur and Little Rock's Black Santa for many years.
