  • The Daily Register/Daily Journal and This Week’s Money Stretcher are sponsoring two Christmastime contests, one featuring readers in their most tacky Christmas sweaters and one of businesses’ decorated windows.
    For the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest, we are asking readers to submit photos of themselves in their ugliest Christmas sweater (or they can come in and we will take the photo for them).
    We will run the photos in both publications Nov. 20 and Nov. 27, and again on Dec. 4. We are asking readers to vote for the ugliest sweater, and on Dec. 11 we will run photos and announce the winners.
    We are asking for a $5 entry fee, and all proceeds from entry fees will be donated to Toys for Tots. 
    There will be prizes for first, second and third place winners. There will be two categories — men’s and women's with prizes.
    We will also be sponsoring a Christmas window decorating contest for businesses.  We will be doing the same thing as we are doing for the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest — $5 entry fee to be donated to Toys for Tots; photos will run on the same weeks as the other contest, winners will be announced at the same time and photos of winners will be run at the same time as the other contest.
    First place winner will get a free full page ad; second place winner will get a free half page ad and third place winner will get a free quarter page ad.
