Win $100,000 For Montclair Schools In Patch's 'Deck the House' Contest

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. To access the contest page, go to deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/montclair.

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.......

Just curious, is there any other "holiday" around this time that features houses decorated with lights and all- the pix features Santa... I wonder, what "Holiday" exactly is it? Is it so hard to say Christmas? It is, you know, the only holiday the prominently features the outward display of lights. Are those who don't celebrate it so offended, or is Patch so "politically correct" that they can't even write it? Or is there a "holiday" I'm unaware of?
