Deck Your House And Win $100,000 For The LEUSD

Get out the lights and holly. Your decorating could net $100,000 to the Lake Elsinore Unified School District.

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.

does it have to be our house? Not sure if my neighbor's around the corner are on this site, but it is all about National Lampoons Christmas Vacation going on there!

Can you tell us where, I'd love to see it ;) By the way that movie is a classic and tradition in our house at Christmas.

I believe it is Buchanan Street. There are two houses, side by side. It is almost like they are competing with each other on who has the most stuff out lol. Lights on the roof, grass, EVERYWHERE. Edison surely is loving them :) We watch A Christmas Story & Christmas Vacation multiple times during the season as a tradition in our household as well. Christmas Eve, our TV goes right to TBS at 8pm and stays there until 8pm Christmas night for the 24-hour A Christmas Story showing. When I was a kid, we had a thing called Christmas Card Lane. It was a neighborhood of larger houses that decked their houses out and had life sized Christmas cards in every lawn. The whole town drove through all through the season and they even sold tickets to fly over it for viewing. It was quite magnificent. We also have a tradition every Christmas eve to drive around and look at all of the Christmas lights, but we have not yet found a neighborhood like that unfortunately :( I know we couldn't afford to do it (although we have always dreamed of giving Chevy a run for his money). One year we will :)

I added a photo of a lane that is off Cherry in Wildomar, not sure cross street, but all homes decorate for all holidays. Christmas card lane sounds wonderful. I'll check out Buchanan Street.

How sad is that? There are NO entries for Wildomar on the link. Get in the Christmas Spirit people and share the link and snap some photos.
