Mini Christmas Tree Decorating Contest

December 6 - 20

For the month of December, we are inviting you to take part in a Mini Christmas Tree Decorating Contest! Groups and Teams can create one together, or you can make one on your own. If you attend a One Life Campus in person, you can submit your tree in person and it will be shown in our lobbies. If you attend One Life Anywhere, post a picture on the One Life Anywhere Facebook Group to be a part of the contest!

Take a look at your campus or One Life Anywhere to bid on a tree and all the proceeds raised will go to help support some local community partners.


Official Rules For Tree Decorating Contest
