Lightbulb Holiday Stall Decorating Contests?

Hi all! We are contemplating having a Christmas stall decorating contest. Naturally, I'm a bit nervous about this due to concerns that people will want to nail a million holes in our wood stall fronts, etc. I'm foreseeing some potential "issues", for sure... including having a horse ingest their decor. I'm more excited about the fun and "sense of community" this will provide for our boarders, so I definitely want to do this :) Just looking for ideas/input from people who have done this!

So, my question to other Barn Owners is; What rules do you have?

I'm thinking "no glass/breakables, participants are allotted 4 nails (installed by BO), decor must be out of horse's reach". Anything else?

Also, what types of "prizes" do you offer? Please include a range of prices, that way people who are in my boat but in a variety of financial positions can be benefited

Thanks, and "Happy Holidays" (since it isn't quite Christmas yet).

This is a great idea! Take it from someone who goes crazy with Christmas decor for the barn the stall decorating is a giant pain. I do decorate the stalls but there isn't much you can do because the horses WILL eat it. Why not try a stocking decorating contest?

Prizes could be a horse training dvd....logo'd t-shirts, hats or mugs..

How about thumb tacks that they can install so holes won't be an issue? Maybe just decorate doors only so it is not strewn all over the place.
Horse treats, a nice brush, candy canes, wormer, free month of something you charge extra for like blanketing or turnout?

Or what about some of that sticky/tacky stuff that you can use to stick stuff on and then peel it off?

That's what we're using. We have a set of hooks that attach to the walls with sticky stuff. They hold well, but peel completely off when you're done. They can't hold really heavy things, but can still hold more than you might think.
