Arboretum sponsors scarecrow contest
The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is sponsoring a Scarecrows in the Gardens contest, a juried exhibit of original, one-of-a-kind creations of scarecrows and other garden folk that reflect the harvest season in Minnesota.
The contest has a $20 entry fee. All scarecrows will be on display from Sept. 21 through Nov. 3 as part of the arboretum’s autumn celebration.
Suggestions include a scarecrow that reflects a pastime such as bird-watching, star-gazing or playing a yard game.
Entries may come from artists, community organizations, businesses, individuals, families and teams of all ages. Each entry will win an arboretum pass. Prizes will be awarded to the arboretum staff choice and to people’s choice.
Applications are due by Sept. 6, and the scarecrow entries are due between Sept. 6 and 17. The fully assembled scarecrows must be delivered to the arboretum’s Margot Picnic Shelter area between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Arboretum staff will install and determine the placement of all entries. Winners will be announced Oct. 31.
For more information and to download a registration form, see the arboretum website at www.arboretum.umn.edu, or call 952-443-4401 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
