Santa Claus may bring a lucky school district $100,000 this holiday season, and it doesn't matter who's been naughty or nice.
What does matter is which Patch community features the most decked out, dazzling, awe-inspiring holiday displays, as decided by readers.
There's still time left to enter Patch's nationwide Deck the House Contest, with a grand prize of $100,000 to be awarded to the local school district. Readers have through Dec. 26 to upload a photo of their festive homes and vote on their neighbors' submissions.
Each winner will be forwarded to a national Patch judge who will select 24 finalists from among the sparkling winners. All 24 will receive $500 that they can apply to their December electric bills.
Then from Dec. 30 to Jan. 8 you will be able to vote for the Best Decked House in all of Patch. The grand prize winner’s school district will receive a $100,000 check from Patch.
But time is running out! Patch readers across the Jersey Shore already have been nominating their bedazzled homes (see our gallery to the right) and you have just days to get in on the action!
Don't miss out on this chance to benefit Manasquan or Belmar's children with a $100,000 donation to the school district. Visit deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/manasquan to enter your home and vote!
