Patch.com (owned by AOL) is running a special nationwide holiday “Deck the House” contest for their 860 local Patch sites. Our local patch site is TE Patch and Bob Byrne is the editor.
All of us that have holiday decorations and lights on our homes should enter the contest. Contest entry period is open until Monday, December 26 at 11:59 PM. Nominate your home by uploading a photo for the contest and entering the contest. Here’s the link to enter: deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/media.patch.com.
At the conclusion of the entry period, a Patch.com employee will judge one winner chosen from each of the 860 local Patch sites. Judging will be based equally on the following “judging criteria”:
- Festive nature of decorations
- Capturing the spirit of the winter holidays
The Judge will select 24 finalists that will proceed to the National Voting Phase which begins starts at 9 AM on December 30, 2011 and ends at 11:59 PM on January 8, 2012. The twenty-four (24) high scorers are named the finalists and each will receive $500 to use for December electric bills. For the Grand Prize Winner who receives the highest number of votes, Patch will donate $100,000 to the public school system where the winning home is located.
