The 4th of July can mean a lot of things for people: a day to hang out by the pool, an excuse to try out that new grill, a reason for over-the-top parades, and, above all, a day to acknowledge our country. Many of us come together to honor America with our neighbors, our friends, and our loved ones.
Whatever you do and however you celebrate, we would love to see all the ways you observe the 4th of July in your neighborhood. So, we’ve decided to have our first-ever 4th of July Photo Contest. To enter, all you have to do is:
- Take a snapshot of your 4th of July celebration
- Fill out this form.
- …that’s it!
The grand prize? An ice cream truck delivered to your neighborhood, courtesy of Nextdoor. Just imagine: you’ll be a hero to every kid on your block!
Nextdoor will begin accepting photo entries July 4, 2013 at 8 a.m. PST and will stop receiving entries July 8, 2013 at midnight PST. We will select the top 10 photos from the submissions. Voting will be open from July 9, 2013 at 8 a.m. PST to July 15, 2013 at midnight PST. We’re looking forward to seeing your celebrations – until then, have a wonderful holiday weekend!
There is a “like” tab for Twitter, Facebook, and other blog sites (WordPress and Gravatar); but there is no feature that allows me to “like” this/post this blog to my neighborhoods Nextdoor website. So, I want to know is there a feature that allows me to “like” this on my Nextdoor_Calumet Heights website??? And if so, how do I access it??? Please help!!!
Hi there, sorry for the confusion: you won’t be liking on the blog. Once we receive all submissions, the voting process will begin following the holiday weekend. You can like the photos on our Facebook page then. Let us know if you have any other questions!
Just to be clear, in order to like a post/photo Nextdoor members must go to the Nextdoor.com Facebook page? Nextdoor.com Members do not post a link or a photo on their individual Nextdoor.com website (e.g., Nextdoor_Calumet Heights)? Is that correct?
Hi Kayla, you can submit your photo through this form, and voting will be on our Facebook page starting next week. Voting will all take place on our Facebook page – nothing is on your Nextdoor website!
Thanks Anne for clarifying, I think I got it! Thanks again.

Hi Kayla, sorry for the confusion – the voting period will be open after the holiday weekend, and you’ll be able to like the photos on our Facebook page.
