We hope everyone can join us in this year’s contest and we look forward to seeing your entries.

After all who doesn’t like a good scarecrow!

The Rules:

1.) 6 x 6 SQUARE FEET is the max size allowed for participating neighbors to decorate their display. If you want to decorate a larger space go for it. But only decorations within the 6′ x 6′ area are to be judged. This will help to keep the competition fair to those who may have smaller yards.

2.) 1st Place PRIZE $100 CASH & 2nd, 3rd Place Trophies

3) TO ENTER CONTEST: Simply email WASHSQPASADENA@GMAIL.COM to register. Letting us know your name and address. Along with a photo of your masterpiece! This way we can add your scarecrow to the contest map so neighbors can find your yard!

4.) DEADLINE: The completion of your scarecrow entry needs to be done by October 28th at Midnight. However, the sooner you have your scarecrow up the more chances for neighbors to see it and vote for it.

The winner will be announced on Sunday October 30th at 3pm! Via Zoom at this link!

Meeting ID: 835 7326 1330

No matter how you vote all ballots must be dropped off or cast by Oct 29th at MIDNIGHT!
