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. You can get details on how to enter by clicking on this link.
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.

The home, located on Highway 81, is legendary in Loganville for its magnificent Christmas lighting. Had they won, Walton County Public Schools would have been $100,000 richer. If a Loganville home located in Gwinnett County or a Grayson home is chosen as a finalist, the Gwinnett County School district would be in the running for the $100,000.
So if your home is one that lights up the whole district at Christmas, enter it for a chance to win some much needed funding for your school district! After all, ‘tis the season.......
