Design a New Light Display for the Glittering Lights 2021 Season!


Glittering Lights gives local kids the opportunity to put their own touch on the fan-favorite holiday light show. Kids aged 6 to 16 are invited to design a light display for the upcoming year’s Glittering Lights experience. “I’ve heard the ‘ooh’s’ and ‘ahh’s’ from kids as they look out the window when driving through the lights,” says Glittering Lights event producer John Bentham. “This contest is the perfect way for one lucky winner to see their creativity and inspiration come to life in a Vegas holiday show.”

Submissions must be entered by February 20th for a March Madness tournament-style voting process on social media. The display does not have to be holiday related, but contestants are asked to share why they chose their display and what it represents. The winner will receive a $500 scholarship, see their display in lights for the duration of the upcoming season, and receive additional ‘glittering’ perks. Guests can visit Glittering Lights for inspiration until Sunday, Jan. 10 before the attraction closes until Nov. 2021.
