Festival of Trees Contest seeks contenders

Festival of Trees entry from Jann Doering Woodson of TriHealth entitled “Christmas Confectionaries”

Area residents are invited to decorate an artificial 3 to 4 feet tree in this fun contest. Past entries have exploded with creative twists. Some entries went for beauty with the contrast of a white tree full of red birds, illuminated winter wonderland houses skirting the bottom of a tree and opulent ribbons and picks of glitter adding sparkle and brilliance. Others were themed with potted plants and garden gloves, a Grinch towering over a tree, and even the Eiffel Tower glittered on a French-themed tree. All of the entries were wildly creative and brought joy to all of the Holiday in the Village attendees.

Four $50 Prizes will be awarded – one winner by popular vote at each location, plus one tree will be judged “Best in the Village” with a $100 prize award!

It’s not too early to start thinking of a creative theme and decorations. Enter as a group, family, business or as an individual. Entries are due on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, by 5:00 p.m. at City Hall.

Contest Rules

Entries will be displayed at one of four locations, including City of Montgomery at the Universalist Church, Bethesda North Hospital, Ohio National Financial Services and Twin Lakes Senior Living Community during the Holiday in the Village event on Saturday, December 2, 2017, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. Contest participants will be contacted by November 21, 2017 with your designated indoor display location.
