All entries must reside within the boundaries of the 8th Police District ( loosely - from the river to the northbound side of the boulevard and from Rhawn street to the city line north of Southampton road). If we are unsure if a nomination is within the boundaries, we will need to verify address with the district. 2. All addresses and displays must be clearly visible from the street! (If your address isn't easily visible from the street, your home may be overlooked by our judges) 3. All nominations must include an address number and street name. Also, please indicate if your nomination is a Single, Twin/Corner, or Row. 4. Since the Judges have several homes to score, all entries MUST remain lit until 11pm on December 16th and December 17th.
