Clifton Holiday Door Decorating
Contest Winners

CLIFTON, NJ – The Clifton Board of Recreation held the judging of its Annual Holiday Door Decorating contest the week of December 4, 2017.  The contest was created in the spirit of the season in hopes of getting Clifton families to work together, spend quality time and achieve a common goal while exploring their creative and artistic talents.  This year, there were 26 participants in the contest.  Each participant who had decorated received a goody bag on their doorknob, filled with candy, coupons and holiday novelties to thank them for their participation and to let them know that their door was judged.  Winners were then selected based on 10 categories. 

The grand prize winners for each category received a trophy, a ribbon, various gift certificates for dinner at local restaurants, and various coupons, recreation dollars and a gift card from Target. A special thanks goes out to our event sponsors which include Doherty Enterprises-Applebee’s, Chevy’s, Sputino’s & The Shannon Rose, The Barrow House, Uno Chicago Grill, Floyd Hall Arena, Buco Ristorante, Moe’s Southwest Grill, TGI Friday’s, YogaCentric, Allwood Diner, Philly Pretzel Factory, Wendy’s, House of Cupcakes, Mr. Cupcakes, and Zinburger.

This year’s winners were broken down into 10 different categories. Here are the winners for each of these categories: The Alicea Family – Most Original, The Paragh Family – Best Craftsmanship, The White Family – Most Creative, The Lynyak Family – Most Colorful, The Edel Family – Best Theme, The Silvera Family – Most Artistic, The Winkler Family – Most Unique, The Kohler Family – Child’s Creation, The Fay Family – Best Holiday Message, and The Potocki Family – Most Unusual. Ribbons were also awarded to six honorable mentions: The Lichtenberger Family, The Murray Family, The Coleman Family, The Dabrowski Family, The Scorziello Family, and The Ponce Family. All participants did an excellent job this year and we want to thank all our other families who participated in this fun event. Congratulations to this year’s winners!  Next year we hope to see many more festive doors for the season.
