Vote For Your Favorite Holiday Wreath

Contest ends midnight Sunday.


Perhaps you've noticed them on storefronts up and down Washington Avenue.

The whimsical wreaths were created by students at  and  in a contest sponsored by the Washington Avenue/Prospect Heights Association.

The public (yes you) is invited to vote on your favorite wreath here. Voting ends Sunday at midnight.

The classes creating the winning wreaths from each school will be treated to a pizza party next week.

This is the of the wreath contest.

"It was a good way to interact with the neighborhood young people," WAPHA president Dana Ottey said after last year’s contest. "And it's a nice way to decorate the street on a budget," she added.

Each wreath has its own theme. The wreath at is decorated with self portraits done by the students. Each drawing is connected by jigsaw puzzle-shaped paper and sign on the wreath says “KB4 Fits Together Like a Puzzle.” The wreath at Abigail Café & Wine Bar is covered with brightly painted stones and a sign saying “Have a Rockin’ Holiday Season.”   

“I think it’s a very cute idea,” said Abigail Hitchcock, Abigail Café’s owner.
