Members want to help all our likeminded Happy Halloween Haunters share
their demented delight and appalling appreciation for the best (and their
distain for the least ) efforts made in Their Own Neighborhoods,
ghost-to-ghost across America!
NHHA Awards are not a competition, per se. They shall be bestowed
upon those deemed meritorious of their appropriate rank. The same rank
of Award (e.g., "Worst Place", etc.) may be given out
to more than one participating Haunted Household, should more than one
Neighborhood Participant merit it.
Chapter Leaders nor Award Recipients are required to be actual homeowners
(e.g., leased or rental properties may participate ). While the NHHA
Awards are officially intended for distribution in residential neighborhoods,
it is acceptable that condominiums, townhouses or apartment units may
qualify, at the discretion of each Neighborhood Chapter Leader.
may be bestowed at the sole discretion of each Local Neighborhood Chapter's
Leader, or by consensus among local Chapter Members (either method
to be decreed by each Chapter Leader annually, no later than one week
prior to Halloween Night ). Awards may be bestowed up to
one week after October 31st of this year, and will be available online
to Chapter Members for downloading until then, after which they will be
retired offline until the next year's Awards season.
Award Recipients MUST be known to give out SAFE candy, toys, or other
suitable Halloween treats to their visiting Trick-or-Treaters. Period.
Neighborhood Chapter Leaders' jurisdiction shall not exceed their own
residential zip code areas.
the event that two (or more) Leaders establish Chapters in different neighborhoods
within the same zip code, these Leaders shall be designated numerically,
by order of the date their Chapter was founded.
the NHHA, nor Cosmic Associates, nor their affiliates, shall be responsible
for any harm arising from the misuse of these awards. The NHHA Awards
are intended to be shared and distributed solely in good spirited fun,
with the intention of encouraging better communication between neighbors,
and to further promote enjoyment and participation in traditional Trick-or-Treat-related
Worst Place Award shall be bestowed upon those passionately
possessed lunatics who go all-out to turn their homes into major
spook-infested haunted mansions. Decor will include numerous set
pieces & props, creepy lighting fx, scary music and / or sound,
will have an abundance of swag on hand for Trick-or-Treaters brave
enough to make it to their door, and will manifest further frightening
showmanship (performed with appropriate restraint for the very
young or exceptionally frightened) when dispensing the loot.
Honorable Howl Award shall be bestowed upon those gleeful
souls who make an obvious effort to haunt their homes with exuberance
and style, forthrightly displaying multiple Jack-o-Lanterns, and
/ or other props, dressings, or decorations.
Recipients will be fully-stocked with candy, sweets, toys, or other
traditional goodies (e.g., rocks) for incoming Trick-or-Treaters,
and may also qualify by appropriately greeting the Little Monsters
with an artfully awful costume or mask.
Pumpkin! Awards shall be reserved for those Un-Haunted Houses
where the occupants are KNOWN to be in residence on Halloween, yet
choose to turn the lights off and refuse to offer treats to the
Trick-or-Treaters visiting them.

the circumstances of these houses' occupants (e.g.,
very elderly, infirm, or otherwise physically disabled residents,
or those suffering financial hardship shall be exempt ).
