Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

Goodwill’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. is holding its first annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest. There are two categories, 1. Authentic Sweater – a sweater that has not been modified in any way. 2. DIY – Do It Yourself – take a regular (or Christmas) sweater and bring it to life with decorations, modifications, tinsel, lights, fake mistletoe and anything else to help make your sweater scream “Christmas!” Just email us a picture of your sweater or post to our Facebook page between December 1st and December 31st.  Goodwill will post pictures on their Facebook, and the entry with the most likes and shares will win a $100 Goodwill gift card!  Winners will be announced January 4th.

So, get those creative juices flowing and go searching our Goodwill Stores for just the right sweater!
