Deck Your House and Win $100,000 for Malverne and West Hempstead Public Schools

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

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to win a $100,000 gift to the Malverne and West Hempstead Public 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, Malverne and West Hempstead will be decked out like it’s never been before. And if we win, what better gift could we give to Malverne and West Hempstead kids?

Can private schools participate too?

The breadth of this contest represents a salute to the pagan roots of the holiday rituals and a salute to conspicuous consumption. This contest appears to have lost sight of the true meaning of the season. Anyway, Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Ann, The money will not go to a specific school but to the school district that the winner resides in.
