Suggestions for Scarecrows can be, but are not limited to:
Traditional Harvest Figures are Scarecrows that are typically old-fashioned figures constructed from recycled or throw-away items, such as clothing, newspaper, bags, hay, stuffing or produce (corn husks, vegetables, pumpkins, etc.)
Humorous Scarecrows should evoke smiles, if not belly laughs. Current events, storybook characters, cartoon figures, crazy characters, or out of the ordinary situations are just a few of the ideas for humorous scarecrows. These characters would be fictional.
Celebrity type Scarecrows can depict a modern day celebrity, or one from the past. Use your imagination! Materials used may include metal, plastics, ceramics, etc. A celebrity is a real person. (Hint: consider movie or TV stars, book characters, famous people in the news, famous historical figures.)
As all Scarecrow entries must remain on display outside through Wednesday, October 31, 2012, and may be subjected to severe wind, snow, and/or rain, their construction should be durable and all ornamentation securely attached. The residents must promptly remove any scarecrow that does not hold up to natural elements. NO GLASS OR MAJOR APPLIANCES.
Judging will begin on: TBD .
The judges are volunteers. All decisions of the judges are final.
It is understood that Wolf Ranch and its agents may use photographs of, stories about, and the actual Scarecrow entries themselves as well as all information contained on the entry form for publicity and promotion. I understand that the addresses of the Scarecrows will be posted on the Wolf Ranch website.
Announced by TBD with location map at www.Wolf-Ranch.com.
Prizes will be awarded. Winners will be contacted and recognition will be posted on the Wolf Ranch website (Wolf-Ranch.com), along with the address for each Scarecrow within the community. Prize winners will be awarded their prize at the Annual Wolf Ranch HOA meeting on TBD. If the winner isn't present at the HOA meeting, arrangements will be made to have the prize awarded to the winner(s).
