Residents invited to enter holiday lawn decorating contest
Citizens of Putnam County, it is time once again to break out the lights, wreaths, bows and plastic Santas and get busy decorating your front yards, porches and driveways for the holidays.
Not only will it brighten up the neighborhood and show some holiday spirit, but it may also earn a Walmart Gift Card of up to $100 value.
The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce and Super Walmart are once again sponsoring the Putnam County Home for the Holidays Lawn Decorating Contest.
Putnam County residents may enter by filling out and returning the entry form to the Chamber of Commerce office at 16 S. Jackson Street, Greencastle, or by faxing it to 848-1015 by 4 p.m. on Friday, December 13.
Once entered, residents must have their home decorated and ready for judging by Monday, Dec. 16. Judging will take place between Monday, Dec. 16 and Wednesday, Dec. 18. Lights need to be turned on for judging between the hours of 5 and 10 p.m. on each of these three evenings.
Contestants will be judged on originality, continuity of theme, preparation and effort and "Spirit of Christmas."
Winners will be announced in the Banner Graphic, Hoosier Topics and on WREB 94.3 FM. The first place winner will receive a $100 Walmart gift card, second place a $50 Walmart gift card and third place a $25 Walmart gift card.
The contest is open to all homes in Putnam County. Anyone with questions may call Tammy Johnson at 653-4517.
