An array of decorated Christmas trees took over the Junior League of Arlington Center for Community Service on Dec. 2.

Each of about 100 trees decorated by a community organization, nonprofit or sponsor with a message or cause competes to be voted the best tree in its respective category for a $250 Junior League of Arlington grant.

In total, the Junior League of Arlington, 4002 W. Pioneer Parkway, will grant five $250 donations. Voting will conclude on Dec. 23 and winners will be announced on Dec. 26, said Leanne Haynes, the office manager at the Junior League of Arlington. Every tree receives $25 per 25 votes.

“It’s pretty cool and a super festive time to work here. I love it,” Haynes said. “I think that there’s lots of missed opportunities and I think it’s just because the word is not out there yet. It’s great for you, it’s like a win-win.”
