WHARTON COUNTY ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE
Town & Country Christmas Lighting Contest
EACH YEAR, WCEC HOSTS A TOWN & COUNTRY CHRISTMAS LIGHTING CONTEST.
The contest is open to members and nonmembers. There are two categories: one for residences in the co-op service area and the other for residences in the city of El Campo and surrounding communities.
Directors from the nine WCEC districts judge all entries in early December. In the country, each of the nine director districts will have two semifinalists who each will receive a cash prize of $50. Then, the judges will choose first-, second- and third-place winners from among those 18 semifinalists. These winners will receive an additional cash prize of $150, $100 and $50, respectively.
In town, there will be three winners who will receive cash prizes of $100 for third place, $150 for second place and $200 for first place.
A Best of Show for the overall best decorations will be chosen from the finalists, and this winner will receive $200 in El Campo Chamber Bucks.
The rules are simple—there are no special themes, and it doesn't matter how many lights you use. The judges will be observing the overall design and appeal of your total Christmas lighting decorations. Entries are eligible to win top prize(s) (First Place-Town, First Place-Country, Best of Show) only once every three years.
