Did you decorate your house for the holidays this year? Enter our "Deck the House" contest and you could win $100,000 for your local school district and $500 to pay your electric bills!

Patch's "Deck The House" contest is giving away serious dough to the winner's public school district, and Boston teachers already have ways they could spend the money.
It may be the holiday season currently, but Boston Public School teachers have been making their list and checking it twice for quite some time. Since Patch is giving away $100,000 through its Deck The House contest, we wanted to see what teachers in Boston could do with the money if a Boston resident won. Some teachers have requests for a single item, like Boston Renaissance Charter Public School 5th grade teacher Kathy Reilly's request for a video camera on iLoveSchools.com (the camera costs $453.19), a request she makes to help her students bring fairytales they are writing to life.
