Christmas decorating contest

A company that strings Christmas lights and otherwise decorates houses for the holidays will give away its services to 100 military families for a second year.

You can nominate a family online for the “Decorated Families” program. The deadline is December 1. Those chosen are based on a 350-word nomination essay and partially on their proximity to a Christmas Decor franchise. The company has locations in every state except Hawaii and South Dakota.

Families selected for the prize will work with a company designer to plan the display they want. All materials are owned and provided by Christmas Decor. A crew then installs it no later than December 15. The display remains up until a post-season date set by the family and the company.

Christmas Decor was started in 1986 and has about 40,000 residential and commercial customers.
