BURKE -- The Burke Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a holiday lights contest. Folks in and around the Burke area are invited to decorate the exterior of their homes and businesses for the season.

Get creative, get festive, and put the imagination to work; show folks what a great community looks like during the holidays. Prizes include lift tickets, Kingdom Trails passes, gift certificates for local stores, and more will be awarded to winners in various categories with special consideration to eco-friendly, energy efficient choices (think solar lights).

To participate, have decorations up by Dec. 15. Call 626-4124 or e-mail the chamber at BurkeChamber@BurkeVermont.com with your name, address, and phone so the judges can check out your decorating skills and let you know if you've won.

The judges' identities will remain anonymous to prevent bribery and other holiday shenanigans. Winners will be announced on or about Dec. 20.
