It’s the Bank of Kentucky’s turn to sponsor the second annual county-wide scarecrow contest! We welcome everyone to participate in this fun competition! Below is the contest entry information:

  • The scarecrow contest is open to any resident of Gallatin County (one scarecrow entry per person). There can be multiple entries from one household. Each entrant must fill out a complete entry form. There will be three divisions: Children (ages 12 and under), Youth (ages 13-18), and Adults (ages 19 and over).
  • Applicants are encouraged to design scarecrows that are positive, creative, and non-violent.
  • A photograph of your scarecrow and completed entry form must be brought into the Bank of Kentucky no later than September 29th, 2010. Please have a sign of some sort with the scarecrow’s name placed at the feet of the scarecrow so it can be identified in the photograph.
  • The scarecrow contest judging will take place at the Fall Pumpkin Festival at the waterfront park on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010. The scarecrow photographs will be displayed for the public viewing and will be separated by division. Ballots will be available from 3:00-7:00 pm for the People’s Choice awards.
  • The top three People’s Choice scarecrows in each division will be awarded a ribbon and a prize (prizes to be announced).

If you would like an entry form you can either pick one up at the Bank of Kentucky or let us know in the comments and we will e-mail you the form.

We will be announcing the winner on Saturday, October 2nd!
