Enter Patch's “Deck the House” Contest For a Chance to Win $100,000

Did you decorate your house for the holidays this year? Enter our "Deck the House" contest and you could win $100,000 for your local school district and $500 to pay your electric bills!

We’re launching our annual Deck the House Contest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in America—the best “decked” house in the country—the one home so spectacularly decorated that everyone in town jokes your holiday decorations could rival Rockefeller Center’s.

If this sounds like your house, upload a photo or video of your home to our contest page from Nov. 26 to Dec. 16. Check back with Patch on Monday

Only residents of Patch towns are eligible to enter. We’ll select 24 regional finalists, and from them, pick one grand prize winner. Patch will pay up to $500 of the utility bill for each finalist, while our national winner will have $100,000 donated to his or her local school district.

Our contest is right around the corner, so now’s the time to get your holiday decorations out of the attic and “deck” your house.

After all, ‘tis the season...

BTW many of us like the way you include pleasant items and just not the news. Enjoy reading about the positive things that are happening in the community. Keep up the good work!

Don't worry, MzPaula. I'm going to keep covering everything – the serious news and the lighter stuff. And Roy, I promise that people do win.

So nice to finally know your name! We first noticed your lights when we were coming from Genuardi's. It was when my son and nephews were little kids and they are in their forties. We are taking our grandchildren now. It is one of the highlights of the Christmas season. Thanks you so much for the joy you have brought us. We appreciate it. GOD Bless you and your family.Happy Holidays.
