Lighting contest nominees sought

Christmas decorations are already going up all over Owensboro! And we want to honor those that take the time, channel their creativity and brave the cold to make their home a lighting masterpiece.

OMU and the City of Owensboro’s Neighborhood Alliance Program are hosting the annual Golden Santa Award. This unique residential holiday lighting contest carries with it not only bragging rights, but a $250 OMU gift certificate and a lighted yard sign.

Entries will be judged on originality, use of light, color, design and movement. Judging will take place December 17. The winner will be honored by the Owensboro City and Utility commissions. The deadline for entries is December 12, 2018.
