Patch Contest: Deck the House, Win $100,000

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 between Nov. 26 and Dec. 16.

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.

So, what are you waiting for? Now’s the time to get your holiday decorations out of the attic and “deck” your house.

After all, ‘tis the season.......

I actually live in Port Chester Not Rye i don't know how i ended up here. Is there anyway that the video and entry can be moved to Port Chester with my current votes? Does it matter?

Hi Charles. I don't think it matters but I am going to double check and get back to you Wednesday. Thanks again for submitting. I love it! Tell your friends to vote (once we make sure that you are registered for Port Chester).
