Deck Your House and Win $100,000 for Southwest Atlanta Public Schools

Get out the lights and holly. Your decorating could net $100,000 to our schools.

Patch.com is launching a nationwide contest to find the best dressed home in its Patch communities, and the winner’s school district will receive $100,000, no strings attached.

Here’s how the contest works. Beginning on Dec. 8 and continuing through Dec. 26, you can nominate your home by uploading a photo to the contest entry form on the site. During that same time period you and your neighbors will also be able to vote for your favorite festive home. The winning entry will be forwarded to a national Patch judge that will select 24 finalists. Each finalist will receive $500 that they can apply to their December electric bill.

From Dec. 30 through 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.

So, get out your lights and ladders (and your competitive spirit)! Whether your style is sophisticated or silly, we want you to dress up your house in the name of good cheer and our kids. At the very least, southwest Atlanta will be decked out like it’s never been before. And if we win, what better gift could we give to our kids?

Is the home on Waterford decked out this year, it would be a great candidate.

Does anyone know the family of the popular Waterford Xmas home? If so, please have them contact Cascade@Patch.com or, if they are tech savvy, they can follow the rules here and upload pictures of their home!

The B.E. Mays High cluster schools would put $100,000 to good use adding programming and resources for our children. I'm on the hunt for festive homes! I'm almost inspired to decorate the outside of my home.

Dawn, You don't have to have a "decked out" house to enter. There are lots of prizes and hundreds of community recognitions. It's easy! Come on. Take that picture and upload it!!!
