Get out those holiday decorations and string up your lights to help your schools win big.
Patch will soon host a "Deck The House" contest to see who has the most dazzling display of the season on their homes.
Winners will have their December electric bills paid for by Patch, and even have the chance to win the grand prize: $100,000 for their school district — no strings attached.
Here’s how the contest works. Beginning on Dec. 8 and continuing through Dec. 26, you can nominate your home by uploading a photo to the contest entry form on the site. During that same time period you and your neighbors will also be able to vote for your favorite festive home. The winning entry will be forwarded to a national Patch judge that will select 24 finalists. Each finalist will receive $500 that they can apply to their December electric bill.
From Dec. 30 through Jan. 8 you will be able to vote for the Best Decked House in all of Patch. The grand prize winner’s school district will receive a $100,000 check from Patch.
More details will be coming soon, but for now you can prepare your house for some serious decorating. So, get out your lights and ladders!
