Build a scarecrow using a pre-made frame and lots of imagination.

Build a scarecrow using a pre-made frame and lots of imagination.

By Lindsey Wooten – It’s that time of year again! The downtown Wayne Scarecrow design contest is upon us, and it’s time to get building! Each group or individual that enters will design and build a scarecrow using a pre-made frame and lots of imagination. Be creative! Your scarecrow can reflect your mission, your organization, your business, or your family’s imagination and artistic talents. Registration is $20 for a new frame, or you can re-use your frame from last year for a $15 registration fee. This will ensure a reserved lamp post, a placard, and entry into the contest. The winning scarecrows will be featured on next year’s registration form and its creators will be awarded a small prize and bragging rights! Help us decorate our downtown for the month of October and have fun while doing it!
