Businesses, Clubs & Organizations
Help us spread the excitement about Montgomery’s Kolacky Days and earn some free publicity for your business by entering. The Window Display contest is open to any business or organization in the City of Montgomery. Windows must be easily seen from street-level. Businesses can allow someone else (i.e., clubs, organizations, collectors, and historians) to do a display in their window if they so choose. There is no entry fee and the winner will receive $75 Monty Bucks, 2nd Place $50 Monty Bucks and 3rd Place will receive $25 Monty Bucks. Register your display with the Montgomery Area Community Club (MACC) by either emailing, mailing or dropping the entry form off to 206 1st Street S, Montgomery, MN 56069 or to email@example.com by Friday, July 7. Windows should be ready by Monday, July 10 as judging will occur between July 10 – July 12. Entry forms are available at Herrmann’s Thrifty White Pharmacy or online at www.kolackydays.com. For questions, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or reaching out to Susy Rabenberg.
Window Display Judging
Windows will be judged on the following:
Overall appearance and attractiveness
Use of this year’s Arts and Heritage exhibit theme - “Montgomery - Looking at the Past” or can project one of Kolacky Day’s Signature Events or Activities, which are listed on our website, in the brochure or flyer, or by contacting Susy Rabenberg.
Creativity and originality
Signage: The window should have a sign or window paint that reads “Kolacky Days – July 28 - 30” that can be read from the street. The Montgomery Area Community Club can provide you with a FREE Kolacky Days sign for your window – just let us know!
Windows should remain decorated throughout the Kolacky Days celebration. The display may be removed on Monday, July 31 or thereafter.
The Window Display Contest will also include a Social Media - Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter - contest. Take a selfie or group photo in front of or inside a participating business. Post that photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #kolackydays2017 for a chance to win either Monty Bucks, a Kolacky Days Prize Pack or other cool prizes. The Instagram contest runs from July 10 through July 27. Winners of the contest will be announced Kolacky Days Friday so you can pick up your prize during Kolacky Days.
