Holiday Lighting Contest

OMU is proud to support the festive lighting of our community by co-hosting, along with the City of Owensboro’s Neighborhood Alliance Program, an annual holiday lighting contest. The contest aims to highlight those that use electricity to decorate their homes and yards, making the holiday season brighter for all of us to enjoy.

Each year we accept entries from homeowners themselves and nominations from neighbors who appreciate the effort of making a delightful holiday display. Entries are judged on originality, use of light, color, design, and movement.

This unique residential holiday lighting contest carries with it not only bragging rights, but a $250 OMU gift certificate, a lighted yard sign, and a $100 gift card to a local restaurant from the Owensboro Neighborhood Alliance. In addition, the winner is honored by the Owensboro City Commission and Owensboro Utility Commission.

The contest is open to OMU customers within the city limits.

The deadline for this year’s Holiday Lighting Contest has passed. Thank you for your interest – please be sure to check back next year!
