Win $100,000 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 plus $500 to pay your electric bills!

Patch is launching our annual Deck the House Contest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in Redwood City, Woodside and overall in America.

We're searching for the best “decked” house in the area—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. For Redwood City and Woodside, that page is http://deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/redwoodcity-woodside.

Only residents of our 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.......

Would not it be better to just donate your decoration costs directly to your school. After all the passing of the new school tax measure on the local ballot said, to the affect, " We still need more and more and more money" (my quote). Three Gym's at one high school. My, My, I wonder what the third one is for Chess Club?

At the risk of sounding like the Grinch here, may I point out that climate change is already here, causing damage from everything from the New Jersey boardwalk to our redwood forests, and is exacerbated horribly by the burning of fossil fuels, which is how most of our electricity is generated. Instead of encouraging such extravagant (dare I say wasteful?) use of electricity, can't we think of some less damaging way to celebrate the season?
