2012 Scarecrow Competition – City of Locust Grove
We would like to invite all businesses and individuals to participate in our “Scarecrow Village”. Scarecrows will be placed on the green space area in downtown Locust Grove near the railroad parking lot during the month of October. Families as well as businesses are invited to participate. Businesses are encouraged to list the name of their business and its location. This will be a great way to advertise a home business or a local commercial/retail store. You may place coupons or advertisements in zip lock bags and attach them to your scarecrow for additional advertising.
There will be a 1st and 2nd place in each category. First place winners will receive $50 and second place winners will receive $25.
Please indicate which category you would like for your scarecrow to be judge on.
Please “check” one category:
1.The Most Creative or imaginative
2.The Most Patriotic
3.The Best Hollywood Character presentation
Please fill out the entry form below or print and return the downloadable form to City Hall or email to address below. You may begin work on your display anytime beginning SEPTEMBER 28TH .. All scarecrows MUST be up by Monday, OCTOBER 1 in order to be judged. Judging will take place on Monday, OCTOBER 1.

It is important to keep a watchful eye on your scarecrow during the month of October. It may need occasional repairs due to wind and rain. We want the village to look nice throughout the entire month. If left unattended and becomes damaged, the scarecrow becomes property of the city and will be removed.
