W lookingw1
Sheila and Lorne George examine one of the window designs Friday. Voting for the competition ends Dec. 21, and the winners will be announced Saturday, Dec. 22.

Cast your vote: Vote for your favorite window display by casting a ballot in-store or by "liking" photos of that window design on the Frills by Scott Facebook page.

    This holiday season, local retailer Frills by Scott and Georgia Southern University's Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art are working together to bring a 5th Avenue feel to the windows of the downtown Statesboro store.   
    Six teams of GSU students were chosen to compete in this year's inaugural Frills 5th Avenue Christmas Window Design Challenge to design Statesboro's finest window display. Each team consists of juniors and seniors who are majoring in fashion and apparel, set design and art.
    Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 5, the teams were given 72 hours to construct their windows, which were revealed to the public Dec. 7 during the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority's annual F1rst Friday Downtown Holiday Celebration.
    The winner of the competition will be chosen by the  public. People may vote for their favorite window by casting a ballot in-store or by "liking" photos of that window design on the Frills by Scott Facebook page through Friday, Dec. 21. The winning team will be announced Dec. 22, and each of its members will receive holiday gift cards.
