Final holiday lighting entries are due today

Entries are due at noon today for the final round of the Post Independent’s holiday lighting contest.

The holiday lighting contest is open to all residents of Garfield County, from Carbondale to Parachute.

“As the winners are chosen, a donation to the LIFT-UP food bank will be made in honor of these three winning families, for sharing their festive holiday spirits,” said Stephanie Schafer, publisher of the Post Independent.

The holiday lighting contest rules are simple.

• Submit a photo of your home’s decorated exterior, along with your name, street address, city and a daytime phone number. Winners will be contacted for details about their display.

• Photos must be high resolution, large files of 1 MB or larger. (Make sure your email program doesn’t automatically downsize the attachment.)

• All photos submitted by noon today will be considered. (This is an earlier deadline for this final week.) The winning home and several honorable mentions will be published in the Sunday, Dec. 23, edition.

• Send photos and your info to:
