Halloween Decorating Contest

~ Sign Ups Now Open! ~

A few details

We’re challenging you to fancy up your space for C.C. Mellor’s inaugural Halloween Decorating Contest!

Whether you go spooky, silly, or scary, we want to see your best decorations for the season. We’ll have categories for yards/houses, windows, and/or doors.

We’ll reiterate all of info in the online sign up form. The deadline to apply is October 17th!

You must be 18 years or older to apply. As long as the adults do the signups, we encourage families with kids of all ages to participate!

To apply, you must complete both steps:

  1. Fill out the form.
  2. Email UP TO THREE photos of your display to Allison at sennotta@ccmellorlibrary.org with “CCM Halloween Contest Entry” in the subject line.

Judges from our community will look at your submitted pictures and video links to determine winners.

We will announce all of the participating entries on our website and social media Friday, October 21st.
The official judges’ winners will be announce Friday, October 28th.

There will also be an online vote for the People’s Choice Awards. You’ll be designated a Participation Number, your submitted pictures will be displayed online, and the public will vote. Also, when you fill out our form, you’ll also have the option to opt in or out to our clickable map. That way, neighbors can witness the decorating magic in person to make their decisions. You do not need to be on the map to win from the judges. The People’s Choice Award winners will be announced November 1st.

*In signing up, you’re giving C.C. Mellor Memorial Library the free use of your pictures for promotional purposes. Please don’t include anything in your images that you would not like seen on our social media accounts.*

In addition to celebrating the general awesomeness of your spooky setup, we will also have a category for decorations with a literary reference. If you put the “BOO” in BOOK, we want to see it!

One entry per person, please!

We can’t wait to see what clever and creative displays you all whip up.
