Local Media Sponsors Business Holiday Decorating Contest

As the holiday approaches, to encourage area businesses to get into the spirit and encourage shopping locally, Hi-Desert Publishing Company and Z107.7 Radio have teamed up once again to co-sponsor a free holiday decorating contest for all businesses located in the Morongo Basin. Winners get hundreds of dollars in local advertising, a very cool plaque from Trophy Express, holiday bragging rights, and customers who know you care!

The contest will be judged by professional local artists and designers. It is free to enter and the rules are simple.

The judges use a scale of 1-10 for five criteria, “overall appeal”, “Use of available Space”, Use of Lights and Color”, “inventiveness and overall theme”, and “Wow factor”. Painted windows do not qualify for this contest.

Judging will be done in 4 simple categories;

SMALL BUSINESS (up to 1,500 square feet)
Best Interior
Best Exterior
LARGE BUSINESS (1,500 square feet or over)
Best interior
Best Exterior

Awards will be given for 1st and 2nd place in all 4 categories. The judging is done on artistic merit; the decision of the judges is final.

First place winners get $300.00 in radio advertising from Z107.7* and $300.00 in newspaper advertising from Hi-Desert Publishing*
Second Place winners get $150.00 in radio advertising from Z107.7* and $150.00 in newspaper advertising from Hi-Desert Publishing.* There are some restrictions, (see * below).

There is no charge, to enter call Z107-7 Radio at 760-366-8471 or Hi-Desert Publishing at 760-365-3315 and tell us the name and location of your business and what category you are entering in.
