The fall displays incorporating a scarecrow must be able to be seen from the sidewalk near the street or from the street . This insures that the judges will see your display and will view it. Also it is more fun for passer bys to be able to see the displays from the sidewalk or street as they walk or drive by. If your display can be seen from the sidewalk but is inside, please know that the judges will view your display as they see it. Judges need not go inside a place to view displays.
Scarecrows can be made out of any material. Creativity is encouraged. They do not have to be traditional. Arms, legs, etc. are optional.
No, you can have a professional do the display or help you. Similar to how a business may have a company install the Christmas lights for the downtown Christmas decorating contest.
The Downtown Scarecrow Decorating Contest signs are next to the promotion scarecrows that will not be judged.
