Halloween Decorated Home Contest


Are you crazy for Halloween? Gather up your ghosts, ghouls, and goblins! Pose your pumpkins and phantoms and spooky items! If you and your family have that special spooky decorated home, you might win a valuable prize for being the “Best Halloween Home” in DeKalb County.

DeKalb County Online and Ellwood Seafood and Steak House have teamed up to find the best and scariest Halloween home in DeKalb County. Submit photos (details below) and your decorated home can win one of three dinner prizes from Ellwood Seafood and Steak House. First Place will receive a $100.00 Gift Certificate. Second Place will receive a $ 75.00 Gift Certificate. Third Place will receive a $ 50.00 Gift Certificate.

RULES: Take a photo of your home showcasing the spooky and unique use of decorations (store purchased or home-made). Like the DeKalb County Online home page on Facebook and look for the “Best Halloween Home” contest information. Submit your photo (day or night or both) with your street address and city (within DeKalb County). Then share with your friends on Facebook so they can ‘like’ your photo. 50% of the winning score comes from ‘likes’ on facebook and 50% of the winning score comes from a panel of select judges that will use your photo(s) to select the winner. By posting your home photo on Facebook you give DCO permission to show your decorated home.

The “Best Halloween Home” contest starts Saturday, October 19th and will end October 31st.
