Fourth of July skies over many American cities and towns will be dark this year, fallout from the struggling economy that’s left more and more local governments unable to fund their traditional fireworks shows.

The recession’s red glare has caused fireworks cancellations from Stamford, Connecticut to San Jose, California, and numerous points in between. In Kenly, North Carolina, the town council had to choose between lighting up the sky or laying off workers. Parades and other festivities in honor of America’s birthday have also been called off.

That’s why this year Liberty Mutual is launching its Bring Back the 4th contest, which will award a $10,000 grant for local fireworks, cookouts, parades, or honoring veterans to 10 winning cities and towns. To enter, visit between now and June 14, and take the brief quiz about responsible moments in U.S. history. Families, friends, schools, and businesses can work together to put the sizzle back in their holiday.
