Register to win cash prizes in the second-annual holiday decorating contest open to everyone in Rio Dell and Scotia. There are business and residential categories. Businesses can choose whether to be judged on indoor or outdoor decorations. As with last year, the $1,000 in prizes was donated by the volunteer fire department. The first prize is $250; second prize is $150, and third prize is $100 in each of the two categories. A “Chamber’s Choice” business prize will be offered as well.
Go to the Rio Dell Scotia Chamber of Commerce Facebook page here and fill out the form to register your home or business to be judged, OR go to the chamber office, 406 Wildwood, and leave your name, street address, city, phone number, and category for which you are entering (residential, business indoor décor or business outdoors), on a sheet of paper you can deposit through the drop-off slot on the Columbus side of the building. You need to do this by midnight, December 15.
A map showing the addresses and locations (but not the names or phone numbers) of the people who register will then be created and posted on the Facebook page and provided at the chamber door on paper for pick-up. Anyone can vote, voting continues until midnight December 25, and votes will then be tabulated and winners announced.
