GALION — The Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce invites local businesses to show off their “Tiger Pride” and team spirit for Galion High School Homecoming and Connections Weekend. The chamber is sponsoring a decorating contest and inviting businesses to make the town look festive.
Chamber Executive Director Miranda Jones said the winning business will receive free lunch (up to a $150 value) for all of their staff compliments of the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce.
Participating businesses must submit a photo of their decorated store front or indoor display to the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce by Oct. 13 in order to enter the contest. Pictures can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or message the picture to the Chamber’s Facebook page.
The photo your business submits for the contest will be placed on the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page. The photo with the most “likes” will win. Photos will be posted on the Chamber Facebook on Oct. 14. The photo of the decorated business with the most likes at 5 p.m. on Oct. 16 will be the winner.
This event is free to participate in, no cost or fees apply.
Judging for businesses with outside decorations will be based on curb appeal and what is visible from the street in front of the business. Jones said photos from that angle should submitted along with the address, so people may drive by to see it.
Jones said if your business does not have a store front, you may also participate by sending in a picture of your indoor display and the address of your business.
A list of the decorated businesses will be posted on the Chamber Facebook page along with their addresses. Please feel free to share the post to encourage more community participation and to increase your chance to win.
Only one photo/entry per business will be accepted.
Decorations must not obstruct the sidewalk and/or pedestrian right of way.
