Participating Windows in 2012 Downtown Elgin Window Wonderland

Below is a complete list of participants in the 2012 Downtown Elgin Window Wonderland window decorating contest which takes place on Saturday, December 1. Our judging panel, consisting of Crysta Anderson, Mike Butirro, Tom Creighton, Anna Moeller and Tish Powell, will judge the best decorated windows in the categories of Business and Open. Category winners receive $50 in Downtown Elgin Gift Certificates. Best overall window receives a $300 cash prize!

You can also vote in the Win This Window People’s Choice Award voting at www.DowntownElgin.com. Several of our decorated storefront windows will be displaying gift baskets put together by local businesses and area non-profits which you can win just by voting for your favorites!

Win This Window People’s Choice votes are $1 PER VOTE and you can vote as often as you like! Each vote cast is a chance to win your favorite window’s basket in a raffle drawing to be conducted on Friday, December 14. The best part is your votes help support our amazing non-profit organizations. At the end of the voting, each of the participating non-profits will receive the proceeds from all of the votes cast for their windows. The Winning Window will receive their proceeds plus a matching donation from DNA up to $300! How’s that for a “win- win”?
