Fall brings out the best of the natural beauty that is the Niagara River Region. It is a perfect reason to present the 1st Annual "Autumn Beautiful" contest to celebrate this wonderful season and showcase local home decorations of the season.

This contest is about celebrating the entire autumn season, and all that it has to offer. The season begins October 1st and extends through Thanksgiving each year.

This contest is open to all residents of the Niagara River Region. Each community listed above will have a winner of that community. Each community winner then is automatically qualified to become the Grand Prize winner of the 1st Annual Niagara River Region's "Autumn Beautiful" contest.

The contest is free to enter. To enter simply send us your name and address, as well as a picture of your decorations by emailing us a picture of your decoration, as well as your name and address here. If your email doesn't automatically open simply paste niagarariverregion@gmail.com into your "To" space in your email and include your name, address and phone number, as well as a picture of your decoration and hit "send". You can also mail, or drop off your entry at The Dory Trading Post, 435 Main Street, Youngstown, NY 14174. Include your phone number so we can contact you. All entries must be in our possession by midnight, Sunday, October 20th, 2013.

Judges will personally view your decoration the week of October 21st through the 28th, 2013. The winners from each community will be announced on WNYPapers.com by 4:00PM October 29th. Those seven winners will be posted using a facebook page address that will be given on WNYPapers.com at that time. Once the seven finalist are posted on facebook they will win the grand prize by getting the most "Likes" that will come from their family, friends and people from their community, near and far. Contest final tally happens at midnight October 31st, 2013.

You don't have to spend lots of money to decorate. Look around at the natural elements and assets that the Niagara River Region are rich in. Creativity is more important to judges than the expense. Judges give more points for homemade elements than manufactured elements that create your decoration. Good luck, and if you have any questions contact us. Judges decisions are final.
