UPDATE: Due to the postponement of many Halloween activities in the area, this contest's deadline has been pushed to Monday, Nov. 5, at 11:59 p.m.
We will be announcing a winner on Nov. 12.
It doesn't matter if you're Lady Gaga or Lady Liberty for Halloween. If you have an awesome costume, showcase your creation in our Best Halloween Costume in America Contest.
Last year, the headless boy from Wyckoff, NJ, won. This year, it could be you. Enter our contest for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize!
Adults and children are eligible to enter. Parents can post costume photos of themselves and their family members from this Halloween or from years past.
Here's how to enter:
Simply click on the green "Upload Your Photos and Videos" button above and upload your image. (But first, make sure that you're a registered Patch user).
Then, add a caption for your photo with the name of the person in the photo and a description of his or her costume. To add a caption, click "Edit Photo" after uploading your image and fill in the caption line. Then, click "Finished Editing."
Our contest runs from Oct. 15 to Nov. 5. National judges will choose 21 finalists from each Patch state and select one grand prize winner based on who has the most creative and innovative costume. (We've combined North Carolina and South Carolina for this contest, as well as Washington, DC, and Virginia). Each state finalist will receive $250, and one grand prize winner will receive $5,000.
If your costume is the best in Pennsylvania and will put all others to shame, enter our contest now for the chance to win $5,000.
