Contest Guidelines

• The Scarecrow Making Contest is open to any school, youth organization/facility, neighborhood group, family or individual, business, office group, in short, everyone!


• Entries will be grouped by age or type of group before judging. Individuals will be judged separately.


• Scarecrows must be delivered to the event site (Discovery Meadow, GRPG), ready to go, between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 11, 2013. Directions will be mailed in advance.


• If you would like to keep your scarecrow, it must picked up between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on October 12, 2013. Scarecrows not picked up will be donated to a worthwhile cause, or thrown away.

Please make your scarecrow both wind and water proof, as well as free-standing. You can use any materials to make your scarecrow. Please limit scarecrow height to 6 feet. Make sure you bring whatever tools and materials you need to secure your scarecrow to the ground the day of the drop off, i.e. hammer and stakes, sand bags, etc. Leave valuable items that are part of your scarecrow at your own risk…we cannot guard the scarecrows at all times.


• Judging will take place during Pumpkins in the Park on Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 10am to 4pm. Anyone attending the festival may vote. All winners will be notified the following week via e-mail.


• Prizes will be given to the 1st place scarecrow in each category. Categories are determined the day before the event and are dependent on the number and type of submissions.
