Ohio State University fashion and retail studies students, along with graphic design and interior design students, will design and install window displays in Old Worthington as part of the annual holiday window design contest presented by the Old Worthington Partnership.
The displays will be available for viewing at a Community Kick-off Celebration from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 7.
