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.

Use this link—http://deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/somerville—to upload your photos or video. (Note, the link goes live on Monday, Nov. 26.)

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 ...

Are you working with the Somerville Arts Council on this? They are soliciting nominations for houses to put on the December 15 Illuminations Tour.

(copied from a Facebook post by the Arts Council) Illuminations tour: Nominate a house! We are always looking for new amazingly decorated houses in all of Somerville. Whether it’s yours or a neighbor’s, don’t hesitate to nominate a house. We can’t guarantee it will be on the tour, but we can include especially snazzy nominated houses on our Illuminations map. Send nominations to artscouncil.somerville@gmail.com

Hi Ron. No, we're not officially working with the Arts Council on this, but I'm sure some of the houses on the Illumination Tour would make great candidates to win this contest, which is a national contest. The national winner gets money for his or her electrical bill and wins $100,000 for the local school district.
