Each winner will receive a gift certificate to a local business. Award certificates will be presented in the business division for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  

Judging will take place in the late afternoon and evening of Sunday, Dec. 18, weather permitting. 

Judges will tour the main streets of the Town of Schroon, including Route 9, Route 74, village side streets and Aldermeadow Road. 

If you or your business are located on a side road or an outlying part of the town, contact the Chamber office with your address and indicate that you would like to be included in the judging circuit.
