Welcome to the Christmas Tree Contest!
 
The City of Chicago is looking for the perfect tree to grace Daley Plaza this holiday season and serve as the City’s official Christmas tree!

The City of Chicago has selected three trees as finalists and is asking Chicagoland residents to vote for their favorite.

Visit the "Vote" page to view photos and read the essay from each family. You can vote for your favorite once per day beginning Monday, October 18, 2010 through Sunday, October 24, 2010. Voting will close at 11:59 PM on October 24, 2010.

Once the tree is selected by your votes, the family that donated it will join Mayor Richard M. Daley on Daley Plaza for the official Tree Lighting Ceremony, presented by Underwriters Laboratories, during Thanksgiving week and help flip the switch. Additionally, the winner will receive decorative LED lights courtesy of Underwriter Laboratories.

One voter will be randomly selected after the voting period to receive a prize consisting of a strand of Christmas lights and four (4) VIP tickets to the Official Tree Lighting Ceremony. Visit the "Registration" page to sign up for your chance to win.

No purchase necessary to enter or win a prize. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is sponsored by the City of Chicago Mayor's Office of Special Events. Sun-Times Media, LLC is not associated with or responsible for Contest. For complete and official rules, contact the City of Chicago Mayor's Office of Special Events.
