WOW’s 25th Annual Decorating Contest

Haul those lights, wreaths and reindeer out of the attic in preparation for WOW’s 25th Annual Holiday Decorating Contest.

Judges will be hitting the neighborhood streets the weekend of Dec. 8-10, and it is up to you to let them know you’d like to be in the running.

You can make it a group effort with your neighbors or go solo.

The best decorated subdivision, street or group of homes (our definition of “block”) will win annual bragging rights and $250 to throw a block party.

The first, second and third place individual winners for best decorated house will also win a gift card to home improvement stores so you can buy more holiday swag on discount after the holidays.

One set of prizes will be awarded in Westchase; another set will be awarded within those neighborhoods receiving WOW Northwest.

Judging will take place the weekend of Dec. 8-10 (regardless of weather). Remember, judging takes place in the evening after dusk, so make sure your lights are on! To have judges look at your home, a neighbor’s home or your block, please email the neighborhood name and house address(es) to Business Manager Leslie Blaze at by the morning of Thurs, Dec. 7.

After judging, a list of the area’s best homes will appear on so that all residents can take a holiday light tour. You can see last year’s winners here:

Speaking of judges, we’re looking for some fresh eyes for this year’s Holiday Decorating Contest! If think you have what it takes to determine this year’s winners, please email Leslie Blaze at as soon as possible.

Good luck to all!
