(Oregon Coast) – Two major contests are beginning which will be of interest to businesses on the Oregon coast. While one is for the Newport area, another may let you help decide things like best destination, best restaurant, etc, in a national publication.
The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce’s Beautification Committee is kicking off its annual holiday decorating contest. With the holiday season quickly approaching, the Newport Chamber is encouraging all local businesses to get in the spirit by adorning their buildings with festive decor.
Prizes will be awarded to the following categories: Best Light Display, Best Window Decorations and Best Overall Display. Judging takes in mid-December and the winners will be announced at a Friday Chamber Luncheon.
This year’s Holiday Décor Competition is sponsored by the News-Times. The Grand Prize winner for Best Overall Display will receive a full page feature in the News-Times including a write up and photo. To nominate a business, including your own, please call the Chamber office at 541-265-8801 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your vote.
