HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Students from several Las Vegas valley high schools were rewarded for filling local car dealership showrooms with holiday cheer.

The Valley Automall in Henderson played host to the 15th annual Holiday Tree Decorating Contest on Nov. 30.

Centennial High School paid tribute to teachers with its themed tree, also transforming a Fiat into a school bus. The "Teachers Rule" tree won the school's International Club first place and $3,000.

Cheyenne High School took second place honors and $2,000 with a tree inspired by the Las Vegas Strip.

A "CSI" themed tree from Sunrise Mountain High School won third place. The school's student council provided a chalk outline of a snowman as part of its decoration piece. The tree won $1,000 for the school.

A total of 20 schools entered in the contest, which was judged by FOX5's Elizabeth Watts and John Dabkovich, among others.

Organizers said the cash prizes help aid extracurricular programs at the high schools.

You can check out the decorations at each of the 20 dealer showrooms at the Valley Automall located off U.S. 95 at Auto Show Drive. You can also go to valleyautomall.com for more information.
