Judging for the Merle Hay Neighborhood Association’s 19th annual Holiday Lights contest this winter will take place in mid-December. If you would like to ensure that your house is included in judging, please contact April at (515) 707-6386. Your home or your neighbor’s home may be considered for a prize even if you don’t contact us. Three homes will be awarded a $25 gift card. Judges will be looking for creativity, originality, holiday spirit, neatness, and theme coordination. We encourage as many people as possible to decorate their homes and thank everyone who makes our neighborhood a little brighter this holiday season!
