2nd Annual Make Wellston Beautiful Holiday Decorating Contest underway

The Make Wellston Beautiful Holiday Decorating Contest is back for this year! For 2017, there is a new division and prize amounts have been increased. The contest has three divisions and three cash prizes for each description.

Apartment Division: This class is open to any decorated Christmas-themed display at an apartment building of two or more units inside the 45692 zip code.

Business Division: This class is open to any display located at a place of business inside the 45692 zip code.

Home Division: This class is open to any decorated Christmas-themed display at a single family residence located inside the 45692 zip code.

Prizes for Winners: Cash prizes awarded for all divisions will include: first place, $100; second place, $50; and third place, $25.

Nominations: From Dec. 2 through Dec. 21, members of the public are invited to nominate their favorite display in each of the three divisions. To nominate a display, simply enter the address of the property you wish to nominate, in addition to your own name and phone number (only so we may verify information) into a nomination form (forms available on the Make Wellston Beautiful Facebook page).

Please note that no nominations before Dec. 2, 2017 will be accepted! Nominations will be added to the voting poll within 24 hours of nomination unless inclement weather prevents a clear picture from being taken.

Voting: Once a display is nominated, it will then be added to the voting poll for its division. Members of the public are invited to vote for their favorite display in each division daily (please note that this is restricted to one vote per day per division by IP address). Voting will open on Dec. 2 when the first nomination is received and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 21 with prize winner results announced soon after. Please note that photos of each display will be posted online so that you may make an educated voting decision from the comfort of your computer screen.

"Make Wellston Beautiful wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"
