All growers are encouraged to enter and compete in the MCTA Christmas tree and wreath contest for the opportunity to present a tree to Michigan's Governor and to represent Michigan in the National Christmas Tree Association Christmas tree and wreath contest. National winners have the privilege of presenting a Christmas tree to the President and his family for display in the White House.
To be eligible to compete in the contests, contestants must be members of the Michigan Christmas Tree Association and be willing to represent Michigan in the NCTA tree competition if selected as the winner. Note: To participate in the NCTA tree competition, you must be an NCTA member. You do not need to be an NCTA member to participate in the Michigan Christmas Tree Association contest. (The next contest will be held in 2016.)
