The Downtown Park Hills Association is hosting its 3rd Annual Scarecrow Contest!
ALL Park Hills businesses are invited to participate! Just register your participation, create a scarecrow, and then invite your friends, family, customers, whomever you'd like, to vote for your creation on the Downtown Park Hills Facebook Page.
Downtown light poles are available for use - even if your business is NOT located downtown. There are only 27 poles available and those will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scarecrows may be located on the poles, in front of your business, or in your business window.
Rules & Guidelines:
This contest is open to ALL Park Hills Businesses!
Register your participation on the Park Hills - Leadington Chamber of Commerce's Website ASAP. There is no fee to enter.
Create your scarecrow and have it up for display no later than OCTOBER 14, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. then call Tammi at 573-431-3577, Ext. 37 to let us know your scarecrow is ready for photographing.
Scarecrows will be allowed on light poles (with an assignment from the DPHA) near your storefront, or inside your business front window. Please refrain from blocking sidewalk accessibility.
Hay bales, pumpkins, mums, and other accessories are allowed for decorating around your scarecrow, but again, we ask that you please do not block access to sidewalk traffic.
Notify the Downtown Park Hills Association as soon as your scarecrow is ready and a rep will be by to take a photo of your entry. We will post all photos on the Downtown Park Hills Association's Facebook Page on October 15, 2021.
Invite people to vote for your scarecrow by clicking "LIKE" on the photo of your scarecrow on the DPHA Facebook page. Be sure to share the link to your scarecrow's photo from the DPHA's Facebook Page to encourage voting. ONLY"Likes" on the ORIGINAL PHOTOwill be counted as votes. The photo with the most likes at midnight on October 31, 2021, will be named the winner. The winner will be announced and the traveling plaque will be delivered to the winner on Monday, November 1, 2021.
The winner will receive bragging rights and the traveling custom plaque to display in your business for one year. Each year's winner will be listed on the back of the plaque permanently.
You are responsible for removing your scarecrow and any debris from your display once the contest has concluded.
Congratulations to the 2020 Winner, The City of Park Hills! Will they be able to hold the winning title for another year? The community will decide!
