For Greeneville residents, the areas are:

* north of Church Street (37745 zip code).

The winner in each division will receive $50 cash. All participants will receive certificates of participation.

Entry forms are available at the Greene County Partnership, at 115 Academy St.

Deadline for entry is Thursday, Dec. 13, at 3 p.m.

Winners will be contacted on Thursday, Dec. 20.

"We are very excited to again partner with the Greeneville Light and Power in the Residential Holiday Lighting Contest," said Jennifer Reynolds, director of Keep Greene Beautiful.

"So many residents do such a beautiful job decorating their homes at Christmas, it's only fitting that recognition be given to those people who go the extra mile in sharing the holiday spirit with others."

Greeneville Light and Power System General Manager Bill Carroll noted, "The Advent season is the perfect time to showcase the natural beauty of our community.

"Traditionally, local residents are quick to show their community spirit and I'm sure this holiday season will be no exception.

"We encourage all interested individuals to participate in the contest, which will provide recognition for those who so graciously beautify our town and county at this very special time of year."
