2020 Scarecrow Trail Contest Drop Off

Loading Events

SCARECROW DROP OFF: Scarecrows are due on Saturday, October 3rd, between 9am and 12pm, to the Lemont Community Center at 16300 Alba Street.

The six-foot scarecrow will be placed over a post pre-staked in the Sanctuary. This makes installation of your scarecrow easier and provides support. A sign indicating your name 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 need to complete your display. Please bring all tools and supplies needed for installation of your scarecrow. Scarecrow locations are not decided until installation day.


VOTING/AWARDS: Community scarecrow voting starts October 3rd and runs through October 18th. Cash prizes will be awarded as follows: 1st place: $125, 2nd place $75, and 3rd place $50. Winners will be contacted by October 24th.

Scarecrows must be removed by November 4th or sadly, they will be discarded. Unfortunately, your scarecrow will not be in great shape after a month in the Sanctuary.
