Girl Scouts of Suffolk County (GSSC) are excited to announce the winners of the Girl Scout Holiday Light Show Display Contest. Daisy Girl Scout Layla Koleda from Mastic-Shirley has been selected as one of five winners of this year’s display contest. The Girl Scout Holiday Light Show Display Contest is held each year ahead of the Girl Scout Annual Holiday Light Show to select five designs from Girl Scouts to be made into new custom light displays.
“We are so excited for the winner’s designs to be brought to life during this year’s light show,” said Tammy Severino, CEO and president of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “With over 80 submissions, it was challenging to choose our winners, as we received so many amazing entries. We thank every Girl Scout who submitted their beautiful designs for this year’s contest.”
This year, the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County received over 80 submissions from individual girls and troops across Suffolk County. Each submission featured a hand-drawn design of the applicant’s newly conceptualized light display idea. The display contest winners will have their designs turned into a light display to be featured as part of “Girl Scout Way,” a special section of the show that features favorites like the Girl Scout Cookie display and the designs from past winners of the contest.
Girl Scouts of Suffolk County’s annual holiday light show is a drive-through show along a 1.5-mile trail at Smith Point County Park Campgrounds filled with dazzling holiday light displays created by our Girl Scouts, staff, and members of our communities throughout Suffolk County. The holiday event features more than 100 fun, artistic, holiday-themed displays.
The Girl Scout Holiday Light Show will be open daily from Nov. 26 to Dec. 30, excluding Dec. 24 and 25, from 5 to 9 p.m. The Enchanted Forest will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 5 to 9 p.m. from Nov. 26 to Dec. 18 and will run from Dec. 26 to Dec. 30.
