Alrighty, it’s time to submit pics of amazingly decorated Sackville houses again! We are accepting entries only via the Email address below so be sure to use that.
There are many local businesses chipping in prizes for this and we will be announcing them soon so if you own a biz and want in, let me know 🙂
The Sackville Community Development Association (SCDA), in partnership with Sack-Vegas, would like to announce the 2nd annual Christmas decorating competition: Sackville Shines. Beginning Dec.1st and running until Dec. 19th local residents will be able to submit 3 photos and one video link of their decorated home (please include house address) to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win a gift certificate from a Sackville business. All entries must be received by Dec. 12/2014, 5pm.
Judging of residential entries will be done through citizens voting on a combination of social media including Twitter, Facebook and the Sack-Vegas blog which is also picked up by Haligonia.ca and distributed to thousands in HRM. On Dec. 12th a photo album Sackville Shines 2014 will be created and voting will open. Each like will count as a vote.Voting closes at 5 pm Dec. 19th. To view and vote on entries go to this (sackvillenovascotia FBook) page, to @sackvillenovascotia on Twitter, to sack-vegas.com facebook page or to @sack_vegas onTwitter. One vote per person per page please.
Local businesses are also encouraged to send in a photo of their decorated store front for a chance to win bragging rights and a First, Second or Third prize ribbon to hang in their window. A judging committee will choose the commercial winners based on “curb appeal”, not the indoor decorations as larger stores may have a full Christmas department.
