Say, it's that pie contest time again!

The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, 501 W. Ninth St., is doing the Lord's work in encouraging the baking of sweet potato pies. The museum will hold its fourth annual "Say it Ain't Say's" sweet potato pie baking contest from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 6. 

Say, of course, is Robert "Say" McIntosh, whose sweet potato pie had no parallel. The museum of African American entrepreneurship in Arkansas keeps the pies coming with the contest, which awards first and second place prizes in both professional and amateur categories and a people's choice award to boot. 

Competitors pay no money but must bring a toy to donate to Say's “Black Santa” toy drive. Find registration forms on the Mosaic Templars website.  

Last year's professional winners included Sweet Soul (“Sweet Potato Praline Cheesecake”) and Sweet Love (“Sweet and Sassy Sweet Potato Pie”). Amateur winners were Sylvia Tyler ("Southern Sweet Potato Pie and Tonita Lard (“Straight from the Patch”). 

Call 683-3593 for more information.
