The annual Winter Light Contest is back! All neighbors with lights up by Friday, December 16th will be considered in the contest. Judges will alert candidates as to the winner after the holidays and AHNA will pay their electric bill for the month of December!
The instructions and rules for the contest are as follows:
1. Participation is open to all residents within the boundaries of Arbor Hills: houses, apartments, and duplexes. 2. Entry is free, no cost or fees apply. No forms to fill out. 3. Judges for the contest are not eligible to compete, nor their families or pets. 4. Contest is for exterior decorations only, including decorations in windows that are visible from the exterior. Judging will be done from outside the residence only. 5. Judging will be based on “curb appeal” as viewed from the street only.

Judges will not enter the property to view back or side yards. 6. The Winner agrees to have one or more photos of their fantastically decorated residence posted on the AHNA Website, email list, and/or published in the AHNA newsletter. Participant agrees there will be no compensation of any kind for said posting or publication. 7. Judging criteria will include: [a] Unique design and creative use of lights and decorations [b] Story line or theme [c] Display and placement of decorations, animated objects, etc.; and [d] Overall presentation 8. Participants should ensure that all lights, animations and decorations are in place and activated for the judging. 9.
