Christmas lights

It's that time of year when Christmas lights enhance the holiday atmosphere.

MANSFIELD -- This holiday season, Firelands Electric Cooperative is asking members to show off their holiday spirit.

From Nov. 22 through Dec. 26, members of the cooperative can submit a photo of their indoor or outdoor Christmas lighting display for a chance to win a $50 bill credit.

Photos should be emailed to (maximum file size of 10 MB). Be sure to put "Christmas Lighting Contest" in the subject line and include your name, address, and telephone number in the body of the message.

Limit of one entry and one prize per member address. Submitted photos will be posted in an album on Firelands Electric's Facebook page where the public can vote for their favorite by clicking on the “Like” button beneath the photo. 

One winner will be chosen every Monday morning (Dec. 6, Dec. 13, Dec. 20, and Dec. 27) throughout the contest, for a total of four winners.

The photo receiving the most likes at the end of each contest period will be declared the winner and receive a $50 credit on their next Firelands Electric bill.

Winners' photos will also be featured in an upcoming issue of Ohio Cooperative Living magazine, as well as on Firelands Electric Cooperative’s website and social media outlets.
