Hope Chamber Sets Window & Sidewalk Decor Contest

By Staff, 10/13/20 5:13 PM


This is the year of unexpected changes – right? The chamber is encouraging you to join us as we put a few changes in place for our Window Décor Contest during the most joy-filled time of the year! We are adjusting our open house plans (due to C-19 restrictions), so let’s have FUN and give the community something extra-special to enjoy!

For three nights (November 19 – 21) from 6:00 -10:00 PM each night, let’s light up the night with Sights and Sounds of the Season! First National Bank of Tom Bean has graciously agreed to sponsor the contest (again) this year! 1st – 3rd place winners will be announced on Tuesday, November 24.

We will invite the community to be our judges this year! A Whoville Voting Box will be placed (outside) the chamber. As the community drives around to view and enjoy the sights and sounds, they will be invited to vote for 1st – 3rd place stores and drop their vote(s) in the Whoville Box. Extra points will be given for videos or pictures of their “favorites” posted on their Facebook page (tagging the chamber). Participating stores will have voting cards to give to your customers prior to the kickoff of the contest.

Whoville Contest Rules:

  1. Window décor must be in place no later than Thursday, November 19 at 5:00 PM
  2. Stick to the theme “Whoville in Hope” to make it a fun Christmas for Everywho! 😊 IF you have more than one window, you may select one window to follow the theme & decorate the others as desired.
  3. Lights are a must! Music would be extra-special!
  4. Sidewalk décor will be included this year! Ideas: Whoville tree! Betty Lou Who & her daughter Cindy holding a sign of HOPE! Grinch stealing packages! You get the picture…have FUN!

Whoville WIN? WHO knows! 1st place: $200 2nd place: $100 3rd place: $75.00
