Entries Accepted November 29

 

Get into the holiday spirit by bringing out your Christmas ornaments and treasured holiday knickknacks to create a wreath for the City and County of Honolulu’s 21st Annual Holiday Wreath Contest. This year’s theme is “Plantation Holiday,” in remembrance of the plantation communities in Hawaii. The overall “Best in Show” receives a $200 prize.

 

Anyone wishing to participate in the wreath contest may enter any one of three categories: Adult Wreath, open to any individual or group ages 18 and older; Youth Contest, open to any individual or group ages 17 or younger; and Theme Wreath, open to any individual or group that best depicts this year’s theme, “Plantation Holiday.” 

 

            A ribbon and monetary award will be given to the winners in each category. First, second and third place winners will receive a ribbon and monetary awards of $150, $100 and $75 respectively. An overall “Best in Show” will receive the Mayor’s Holly Award of $200, while six “Judge’s Choice Awards” will each receive $25. Each entrant, individual or group, may win only one award. 

 

Contest entries will be accepted on Wednesday, November 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Lane Gallery of Honolulu Hale (530 South King Street, Diamond Head end of the ground floor). Entries will only be accepted during the designated date and times, and must include a completed Wreath Contest Entry Form.

 

Judging of the wreaths will be based on workmanship, creativity and use of materials. Wreaths in the theme category will be judged on the entrant’s incorporation of the “Plantation Holiday” theme into the wreath. Winners will be notified by December 8. All entries will be exhibited in the Lane Gallery of Honolulu Hale from December 2, 2006 to January 1, 2007.
