Enter Patch's “Deck the House” Contest For a Chance to 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 from Nov. 26 to Dec. 16. Click here to upload your Toms River entry.

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.

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.......

Sandy has taken so much from us, but Sandy can NOT take away Christmas. What all of us need to remember is Christmas, isn't about lights, ornaments, decorations and gifts. The true spirit of Christmas is found in our hearts and souls, and no matter where we are, and what we have lost, the true Christmas spirit can rise above all. Merry Christmas

I have noticed this year that not so many people in my neighborhood have decorated. Things will never be the same around here.
