A huge thank you to all of our contestants in the 1st Annual Clark Griswold San Carlos Home Decorating Contest. We were overwhelmed by the amount of effort put into all of the displays. The judges really struggled as there were so many displays that were so close in terms of effort and presentation.
We separated homes into the three primary categories listed below. We also had a Judge’s Award, where judges were allowed to assign an award to the house that was their particular favorite. The final category was Honorable Mention, for those homes that were so close to taking 1st or 2nd Place in one of the three primary categories. There were many other homes that could have also been listed as Honorable Mention winners. Truly, very difficult decisions for our judging crew. I would like to thank all of our participating judges, especially our city councilman, Adam Rak, who gave up his Friday evening to assist us with the event.
