About the Holiday Magic Window Display Contest
In the busy holiday period, there is nothing more important than the holiday shop window to attract the shoppers through the retailers’ door and increase the foot traffic to encourage customers to buy local! Your participation is encouraged. Holiday window displays will be judged by the community through a people’s choice vote and by 3 preselected judges. This event will be promoted using local media, social media, and word of mouth and with the help of Eureka Main Street. To participate return the attached form to Talisman Bead, Eureka Books or Origin Design Lab by Wednesday, November 14th to be included on the voting ballot. A 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be award. Prizes include bragging rights and gift certificates from local business.

We ask that all participants contribute a $10 gift certificate as an entry “fee.” The gift certificates will be distributed to the winning businesses to hand out to their customers. This way, the winners get something that benefits their customers and the participants may pick up a new customer when the gift certificate is used.

The entry fee must be a gift certificate, not a discount coupon. If you can’t give a gift certificate for some reason, you may donate an item worth at least $10, or a coupon for a free item to be redeemed in your store.

Who Is Behind This
