All community members, rural or urban, will have an opportunity to participate in the Southern Ohio Farm Show through a holiday lighting contest. Extension staff will record the illuminated displays on December 8, 9, and 10, 2020.

The collective illuminated displays will be combined into a community highlight video for the December 23, 2020, episode of the Southern Ohio Farm Show. We recognize that this holiday season will be different for many of us. We intend to provide each of the nursing homes a copy of the program, so they are able to share the local displays with the residents.

To participate in the holiday lighting episode, submit your display by December 7, 2020 via

To complete the entry form, you will need to include your name, address, county location of the display, and acknowledge that you will have your illuminated displays turned on for the evenings of December 8, 9, and 10, 2020. Be creative and use this opportunity to spread some holiday cheer!
