Scarecrow drop-off location & times: Scarecrows are due on Saturday October 5th 1230-3pm.  Please bring your completed scarecrows to the Lemont Community Center at 16300 Alba St. 

The six-foot scarecrow will be placed over a post pre-staked in the Sanctuary. This makes installation of your ‘crow easier and provides support to hold your crow up. A sign indicating the name and builder of the scarecrow will be provided and installed by The Lemont Township. 

Scarecrows should be complete (or nearly finished) by installation day.  You are welcome to stay in the Sanctuary as long as you like to prepare your ‘crow. Please bring all tools and supplies needed to install your ‘crow.  Scarecrow locations are not decided on until installation day. 

Voting/Awards dates: Scarecrow voting starts October 5th and runs through October 20th. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be selected by the public’s popular vote. Winners will be contacted by October 24th, and will win a cash prize.

Scarecrow Removal: Scarecrows must be removed by November 4th. Scarecrows not picked up by November 4th, will be discarded. Consider pick up a recycling opportunity. Remember, your scarecrow will not be in great shape after a month in the sanctuary.
