POLSON — Because it is a lot more fun to string up those Christmas lights before the snow starts to fly, the Beautification Committee of Envision Polson is announcing plans for the second annual community-wide holiday decorations contest early.

The committee is encouraging people to have their holiday lighting displays completed by Monday, Nov. 26. Contest nomination forms will be available at the Polson Chamber of Commerce and also may be down loaded from the Polson Chamber website at as well as the Greater Polson Community Foundation website at .

The contest is open to residences, businesses, churches, and neighborhoods if there are at least three residences participating.  One winner will be named in each category and will be rewarded with a “winner” yard sign. Judging will take place from Monday, Dec. 10, through Wednesday, Dec. 12. Winners will be announced Friday, Dec. 14.

Judges will look for the best use of theme, the best use of lights, originality, and overall appearance.  

Beautification Committee chair Dorene Parise said, “It isn’t always the displays with the most lights that are the most attractive. We hope people will be creative and use recycled items or a ‘natural’ theme. The whole point of the contest is to express the joy of the season as well as pride in our community. 

“Let’s make Polson beautiful.”
