Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt Rules

All-Around Town Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt Rules

The 2019 Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt consists of 34 scarecrows displayed at businesses, organizations and public locations around Ewing Township.  Each scarecrow has a name and an important secret word associated with it.   Some of the scarecrows are hidden and some are more out in the open.   Fun and challenging clues will be available to help you in the hunt for each scarecrow.

  1. The Scavenger Hunt is to take place between September 28th and October 23rd.
  2. To be eligible to be included in the drawing for the $200 grand prize, you must find the scarecrows and their secret words (see Rule #3) and complete your ballot by the end of the day, October 23rd. You may submit your ballot online at scarecrow-ballot or drop off your paper ballot at our Ballot boxes at the Ewing Senior and Community Center and Hollowbrook Community Center.  No entries, whether in paper or electronic format, received after Oct 23rd will be accepted.
  3. All participants who find 30 or more scarecrows will earn three entries into our drawing.  Participants who find between 23 and 29 scarecrows will earn two entries into the drawing. Participants who find between 17 and 22 scarecrows will earn one entry in our drawing.  Anyone finding ALL 34 of the Scarecrows will receive an additional bonus of 2 entries into the drawing.
