Twelve Finalists will be selected at each mall and their creative entries will be displayed for millions of holiday shoppers to view and vote on their favorite. At Castelton Square Mall, the life-size candy cane cottages will be displayed near Santa at the mall’s Center Court. At Greenwood Park Mall, they will be displayed near Santa in the Von Maur/JCPenney Court.

Use your imagination and get right to the fun of assembling and decorating your festive Candy Cane Cottage.
