Coral Springs’ Deck the Halls Contest Returns With 5 Creative Categories

2022 Deck the Halls Holiday Décor Contest Winners

By Kevin Deutsch

Calling all Coral Springs holiday home decorators: It’s time to deck the halls.

The city is holding its annual Deck the Halls Contest, highlighting the homes of residents who have creatively decorated for the holidays.

To participate, residents must submit a photo and video of the exterior of their home. The contest is for exterior decorations only, including decorations in windows visible from the home’s exterior.

Homes featured in entries must be located in Coral Springs. Due to limited public access, homes in gated communities are not eligible to participate.

All submissions are subject to approval by the City of Coral Springs and must be received by 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 4. All entries will be shared on the city’s digital Deck the Halls Map.

Winners will be notified via email by Wednesday, Dec. 11. Winners will be featured on the city’s social media accounts and the city website. They will also receive a lawn sign for the front of their home during the holidays.

For the first time, judges in this year’s contest “will select winning homes based on specific categories that will allow for recognition of more specialized styles of decorating,” according to a city announcement.

The categories announced by the city are:

  • Most Traditional Display: Focus on classic holiday themes like Santa Claus, reindeer, snowflakes, etc. This category celebrates the traditional holiday spirit.
  • Most Creative Theme: Encourage participants to think outside the box and create unique and creative themes for their holiday light displays.
  • Best Neighborhood Collaboration: Encourage neighbors to work together and judge displays that come together collectively, creating unified and impressive holiday display(s).
  • Best Use of Inflatables: Give credit to displays that incorporate inflatable decorations in an eye-catching and appealing manner.
  • Best Use of Technology: Recognize participants who utilize advanced technology, such as programmable LEDs or projection mapping, to enhance their light displays.

The contest entry form can be submitted here.
