Citizens of Dodge City and Ford County have a shot at winning generous prizes when they enter one of the annual Light Up Contests. Contestants have until noon on Monday, Dec. 12, to register for the Light Up Dodge City contest and until noon on Monday, Dec. 26, to register for the Light Up Ford County contest.
“This is one of our favorite events of the holiday season,” said Megan Welsh, director of the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB). “It’s wonderful to see how creative and extravagant some community members get. If these contests motivate our community members to light up our community, then they are worth every penny.”
Light Up Dodge City contest is made possible through a partnership between the CVB, Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce, and Dodge City Globe. This contest is open to all citizens within the Dodge City city limits. The prizes include $200 in Chamber Bucks for 1st Place, $100 in Chamber Bucks for 2nd Place, and Honorable Mention for 3rd Place.
