EVV News, Press Releases, Community Involvement

Local nonprofit organizations are invited to join us, as we turn the airport terminal into a winter wonderland of festive trees, which compete to gain votes via social media “likes.” The two organizations with the top two “liked” trees will be awarded cash donations from EVV totaling $1,500!


  1. EVV will provide one 9 ft., LED pre-lit artificial tree for decorating, that will already be set up and ready to fluff, shape and decorate, a tree skirt that must be used and a sign that must hang on the tree in a prescribed spot, labeling each tree and participating agency. EVV will assign respective trees to each registrant and/or make them available on a first come, first reserved basis. Trees remain property of EVV at the conclusion of the contest.
  2. Get creative! Come up with a theme for your tree and have fun with it! Repeat agencies must change theme every two years (annually is preferred to keep décor fresh and contest engaging).
  3. Displays must be durable and of a quality that will last for the duration of the event.
  4. Each tree must have a tree topper.
  5. Wrapped boxes/gifts are not allowed underneath trees due to TSA rules and regulations; if you desire to place decorative items underneath your tree, please email [email protected] for consideration and/or approval.
  6. Please bring your own materials, supplies (and equipment if needed) to decorate your tree. You will need your own stepladder, etc.
  7. The previous year’s First Place Winner is asked to wait one year to re-apply.
  8. Trees must be decorated between 7a-12p, on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023. No exceptions.
  9. Pictures will be taken immediately following decorating on Saturday, Nov. 18 beginning at noon.  If you choose to take and provide your own photo (full length image of tree), it must be sent to via email [email protected] and by text 812.629.8375 before you leave the airport and ahead of 12p on Nov. 18. Please follow up with Leslie to confirm receipt and usability of the image. Images will be accepted and used at the discretion of the airport.
  10. Please clean up your space after decorating.
  11. Evansville Regional Airport is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
  12. All decorations will remain on the trees through Jan. 4, 2024, and must be removed by the organizations between Jan. 5-7, 2024.


  • The tree display will be featured on EVV’s Facebook page for the public to vote on their favorite tree by “liking” the photo of the respective tree.
  • The contest will launch on Facebook after the trees are decorated on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023, and will end on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2023. Winners will be announced thereafter.


  • FIRST PLACE: The organization’s tree with the most Facebook “Likes” will receive a $1,000 donation from EVV
  • SECOND PLACE: The organization’s tree with the second highest Facebook “Likes” will receive a $500 donation from EVV
