MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - With December just days away, some U.P. organizations are already getting in the Christmas spirit.

The Salvation Army U.P. Region is hosting its second annual Christmas Tree Spectacular contest. For the next three weeks, Yoopers can vote on trees decorated by 12 different U.P. schools to determine who has the best one. Apart from bragging rights, the school that wins will also get a trophy.

“Last year we did it with businesses and everyone said it would be really fun to incorporate the kids. So, we thought wow high school students, they would be really awesome at this, so we pitched it to them this fall, and they all jumped in and said absolutely and here we are,” Salvation Army U.P. Region Development Director Cari Detmers said.
