The verdict is in - Christmas Light Up competition winners have been announced.

Written by Squadron Energy |

After much deliberation, discussion, debate and with great pleasure and wonder, the Yass and Boorowa Christmas Light Up competition winners have been decided.

The competition, hosted by CWP Renewables and GE Renewable Energy, was very tight with one judge’s five-year-old suggesting that all entries should score a 10 each.

“The purpose of the competition was to create “magic” for the community and the response of this child certainly attests to the success of that purpose”, said Bango Wind Farm Community Engagement Officer Lyn Diskon.

“The number of lit up properties increased this year, it was such a great effort by everyone throughout both communities”.

Winning entries (in no particular order) are:


143 Meehan Street
69 Brennan Street
40 Grampian Street
53 Merriman Drive

“All entrants are winners in our eyes,” said GE’s Mark Pressland, GE Site Manager, Bango Wind Farm.

“Great displays by everyone”. “There are a lot of great displays throughout the community. Go and have a look at them. You will be amazed by the ‘magic’ everyone has helped to create for us all.”

The Christmas Light Up competition covered Yass, Boorowa and surrounds, with entries judged on:

- Presentation, general appearance layout and design

- Light – use of colour, form and composition, variety and repetition

- Creativity, innovation and passion

- Reflection of the spirit of Christmas
