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!
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
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 to deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/hyattsville. 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. So, what are you waiting…
Did you win an award this year? Send us your decoration photos.

Join Hyattsville's annual holiday lighting contest.
Do you love to pay attention to details during the holiday season? Enjoy hanging lights, wreaths and tinsel? Have to have holly? Then this contest might be for you. Each year the City of Hyattsville holds its Light Up The Sky contest to see whose house holds the most holiday cheer. Sign up or just light up your house before 7 p.m. on Dec. 15 and your house will be automatically entered into the contest. One city council member from each ward will choose three winners for their ward. Mayor William Gardiner will also select what he thinks is the most decorative house in the city. City staff will then photograph and publicize the names of the winners. For more information click here.
