2022 WHCA Holiday Lights Contest

Submit a photo of your holiday lights by Sunday, December 18 at 11:59 p.m. for a chance to win one of three coveted flashy trophies and a local business gift card (up to $150 in value). Displays must be within Unincorporated Skyway-West Hill boundaries and visible from the street so our judges can witness them in their full glory from the street. Not only will our judges be admiring your lights, but the whole community – each entry will be included on an interactive map!
