GENEVA – The Geneva Business Association is seeking entries for its annual scarecrow competition.
“Every year churches, organizations, clubs, teams, school groups, pageant courts, businesses and individuals go out of their way to find out who can make the best scarecrow,” said James Santiago, president of the GBA.
Applications are available now.
Traditionally, scarecrows line Main Street and Broadway as fall decorations.
The competition is sponsored by the GBA.
The competition is open to businesses, local clubs and organizations, and private entries. The winners in each category will win a prize of $ 50.
Businesses can use their scarecrow as free advertising in the downtown plaza, Santiago said.
“It’s fun and it’s free to register, and the scarecrows give downtown a little more character and fun,” he said.
Registration for the competition is free, but pre-registration must be done before October 1st. There are three categories: commercial, non-commercial and private. The scarecrows will be on display in the downtown business district from October 16 to November 4.
Scarecrows must be delivered to Crawford Insurance, 55 South Forest Street, for trial no later than October 14. Late entries will not be judged. Contest entry forms are available at Mary’s Diner (front window sill), Scribbler’s Coffee (bulletin board), Honeybee’s Restaurant (back bulletin board), Geneva Public Library and Town Hall from Geneva. Scarecrows should be five to six feet tall, three feet wide, and sturdy constructed. They should be mounted on a wooden pole and be weather resistant. Scarecrows shouldn’t have lights or automation.
