Worthington's Wonderful Window Contest
Downtown Worthington makes a difference each holiday season with their decorated window contest for charity.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

It’s a Wonderful Window Contest
Giving back this holiday season
For the past three years during the holiday season, Old Worthington Partnership has sponsored a decorated window contest for a charity called, “It’s a Wonderful Window Contest.” This year is no different, and the event is bigger and better than ever.
In Downtown Worthington, local nonprofits are busy decorating merchants' store windows. Shoppers and visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite window display through ballot boxes that will be set-up inside each participating store. HER Realtors is one of the merchants on High Street in Worthington that is participating. The local charity that decorated their window this year was the Worthington Police Academy. There are 22 local charities and 20 organizations participating in all this year. All of the charities picked unique themes for their windows.
The competition began on Friday, November 10th, and it will end on December 26th. Each vote is a minimum contribution of $1 ($1=one vote). Shoppers may vote as many times as they want and for as many windows as they want until the contest is over. For the first time, text voting is available. In each window, you'll find a sign that tells you the charity's individual text code. You then text the individual code to 77948.
The merchant’s window with the most votes (largest monetary contribution) at the end of the competition, wins the Bronze Window trophy. The winning window will be announced during the first week of January 2018.
More importantly, every single one of the charities will be winners because each organization will keep 100% of all the money placed in their ballot box. During the last two years, the contest raised over $7,000 for local charities!
Worthington takes window shopping to a new level with this creative contest that’s designed to promote goodwill and generate donations for local charities as well as organic marketing efforts for local merchants like HER. What are you waiting for? Grab your family and head on over to High Street for a fun adventure and a chance to make a difference this holiday season.
