Friday is the deadline to apply for The Davis Enterprise’s popular holiday decorating contest.
Davis’ most festive homes will be featured in The Enterprise on Sunday, Dec. 22, just in time for some pre-Christmas community touring. Winners of this annual contest will receive cash prizes courtesy of The Enterprise.
Entry forms are being published in The Enterprise and must be received by 5 p.m. Friday. Judging will take place between 6 and 10 p.m. Dec. 16-17 — so please, folks, be sure to turn on your displays on those evenings!
Entries may be mailed to The Davis Enterprise, P.O. Box 1470, Davis, CA 95617; dropped off at our office, at 315 G St.; sent via fax to 530-756-1668; or emailed to email@example.com. Please include some background information on your display and any anecdotes that would be useful to our judges and for our story recapping the winners.
A panel of judges will select winners in five categories: best individual house, best use of available space (for those with small apartments and tiny yards), most decorative theme, most creative (hand-made decorations) and kids’ favorite.
Those who hire professional decorating companies are not eligible for this contest. Purchased display products are acceptable, but the decorating effort itself must be home-grown. And submissions must come from the entrants themselves, not from friends or neighbors.
