scarecrow3The Ewing Green Team is partnering with the Ewing Recreation Department and Arts Commission on Saturday, October 24th to expand Ewing’s annual Trunk or Treat to include pumpkin painting; the displaying, judging and awarding of the cash prizes for the our 2nd Annual Scarecrow Contest; and a special ‘fun’ fall home project – the opportunity for people to make their very own scarecrow to take home to decorate their yards, plus refreshments.

 2nd Annual Ewing Green Team Scarecrow Contest

Register today to participate in our 2nd Annual Scarecrow Contest with cash prizes of $100, $50 and $25! Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, design and durability. Let’s see how creative you can be with recycled materials.

All entries must be made of at least 80% of recycled materials in order to qualify. All Ewing residents, organizations, schools, families, businesses are welcome to participate. (And it’s free!) Pre-registration is required. Go to our scarecrow contest page for details and to register.  Any questions, call Lisa at 609-620-0722.

Judging will be on Saturday, October 24th at 4:00 during the Ewing Community Center’s Fall Festival of Fun. Judging will be done by our Ewing Arts Commission and own Mayor Steinmann* (schedule permitting). Completed Scarecrows must be dropped off at the Ewing Community Center no later than Friday, October 23rd, by 4:00 in order to be included in the contest. We ask that entries remain at the center until Nov 1st and may be picked up after that date.

Some limited supplies will be available at the Fall Festival to enable last minute registrants to participate in the Scarecrow contest. However, you must register and complete your Scarecrow by 3:30 in order to be displayed for judging at 4:00.
