Deck the House Contest: This House Could Win $100,000 for South Lake Schools

This St. Clair Shores house is one of the 25 finalists in Patch’s Deck the House contest. Vote now to help this entry win $100,000 for South Lake Schools.

Could this be the best “decked” house in the country?


Congrats to Joe Koss for being chosen as one of the 25 finalists in our Deck the House contest.

We had tons of national entries in this year’s Deck the House contest and in our quest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in the country, we’ve seen everything from a life-size Santa to holiday lights so bright they could blind the neighbors.

We loved seeing everyone’s holiday spirit, but Deck the House isn’t over yet. We’re still looking for the one home so spectacularly decorated that it could be the national grand prize winner of our contest—and it could be a home from right here in St. Clair Shores.

Until Dec. 28, vote in our contest to help this entry win $100,000 for South Lake.

"I have been putting up lights for pretty much the 30 years I have been living (in St. Clair Shores)," said Koss, who has set the display to three songs which can be heard on an FM station.

He hopes he wins to help "repay" South Lake for the education his three daughters received.

"The school system has been great to us and our kids," he said.

All you have to do is visit this page to browse a gallery of the finalists and cast your vote. On Dec. 29, we’ll announce the grand prize winner of our Deck the House contest.

So, now’s your chance to tell us who has the best “decked” house in the country. Vote today!
