How Does the "Scarecrow Contest" Work?

The "Scarecrow Contest" is an official event of the Mount Hood Salmon & Mushroom Festival. There will be two separate catagories for the Scarecrow entries, each will provide the public with plenty of opportunities to get some great photographs for the harvest season:

~1~ "Made-From-Scratch Scarecrow", in which participants will make their figure right at the Mount Hood Salmon & Mushroom Festival. [NOTE: They can bring their own clothes, wood frames, and stuffing which will be limited to either corn stalks or newspaper, but no hay due to the clean-up mess.]

~2~ "Pre-Made Scarecrow", in which participants will bring their figure already made to the Mount Hood Salmon & Mushroom Festival.

Under these two categories, the participants can be judged for the

following:

"Best Dressed Female Scarecrow"

"Best Dressed Male Scarecrow"

"Best Creation"

"Best of Show"

"Best Standing Scarecrow"

"Best Laying Down or Sitting Scarecrow"

"Best Stuffed Scarecrow"

"Best Baby Scarecrow"

"Best Miniature Scarecrow"

"Best Alternative Scarecrow"

"Best Giant Scarecrow"

"Best Theme Scarecrow"

"Scariest Scarecrow"

"Most Handsome Scarecrow"

"Most Beautiful Scarecrow"

And other categories the judges may dream-up right on the

spot!

All entries in the "Scarecrow Contest" will participate in a special "Scarecrow Fashion Show" and will be eligible for awards. All creations entered will be both displayed and explained by the individual or individuals who have created these unique works of art and fashion.

Participants can enter both Saturday and Sunday, but winners cannot enter the same Scarecrow.
