WORTHINGTON — The Community Image Committee of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce, Worthington Public Utilities and RE/MAX Premier Realty are co-sponsoring this year’s Holiday Lighting Contest.

Worthington residents or businesses that would like to be included must have lights up and on by Dec. 6 . The committee will be driving around Worthington from Dec. 7– 11 to take pictures of the top decorated homes and businesses throughout the community.

The following criteria for judging is: best use of color, most original, best composition, most spectacular or best expression of Christmas.

The photos will then be posted on the Chamber’s Facebook page and put to a public vote. Individuals must “like” the original post photo to cast a vote. First-, second- and third-place prizes will be awarded to the photos with the most votes.

The winner will be announced on Dec. 21. People may like and follow the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page to keep up to date on the contest.
