Homes or businesses can sign up on the Christmas Lighting Challenge website.

Winners in each sponsored city will receive special recognition at an award ceremony. Winners in Duluth, Superior, Cloquet and Hermantown will receive a gift basket with prizes and gift cards from local retailers and a personalized award to commemorate their win.
