Make Germantown’s commercial district shine this winter!

Businesses with street-facing storefronts are invited to enter the first seasonal window display contest sponsored by Germantown United CDC.

To be eligible, fill out this form by December 19, 2018.

Why should you participate? Neighborhood shopping districts are places of shared memory where the entire Germantown community still comes together to live, work and play. A vibrant, decorated business corridor can attract customers by making the area more enjoyable and inviting. Window displays and other decorations provide an economically efficient way to attract customers, as decorations are generally inexpensive. Register today!

Contest Guidelines

  • Decorate your windows with a holiday, winter, or other seasonal theme.
  • Make sure your window display is visible from the street.
  • Use lights to attract shoppers and visitors.

The 2018 contest is happening now and runs through New Year’s Eve.

Window displays should be ready for judging by December 19, 2018.

Winners will be announced in early January 2019.

All registered businesses/attractions will receive complimentary “I Love Germantown” buttons to distribute to their customers/visitors. “The People’s Choice” winner, determined by citizen votes, will have the option to design a custom button that promotes your business or attraction. This contest will now be held annually. After winning an award, a business will not be eligible to win again the next year (but will be eligible the following year). This will allow multiple businesses the opportunity to win an award.
