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 at  http://deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/highlandpark 

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.......

They probably found it in Ariana Huffington's old drawers.

Moe - Time to deck the Buck.

Good idea Puddinghead. Will you help decorate? If we win, I'll split the money with you. If you don't mind me asking, how come everyone calls you Puddinghead?

Word on the street is you already have a couple of capable gals to do the Buck's decorating. The name? I was dropped on my head a couple of times as a child and several times as an adult hence the name Puddinghead.

Ok, forget decorating the buck Puddinghead, let's at least help out "Highwood for the Holidays" which is an event that brings over 300 military personnel to help decorate the town of Highwood. It's on Sunday, December 2nd and the Buckleys are playing at the buck. They also play the night before.
