Entries are now open for the 2010 KidsFest Scarecrow competition.

Entries are invited in four categories - preschoolers (Aged 1-5), primary school age, secondary school age and business groups.

KidsFest Coordinator Steve Wilson said the competition is a lot of fun.


"We have two categories in the competition this year; the traditional scarecrow and the creative section, where people may take inspiration from fairy tales or other stories for their scarecrow," Mr Wilson said.

"Last year we had over 20 entries, and are hoping to build on that number, so I encourage as many people to get involved. This is also a fantastic team building exercise for workplaces.

"You can use almost any materials you can think of, the only limit is your creativity!"

"The scarecrows will be displayed around the miniature railway track at KidsTown.

The scarecrow can be put on display at SPC Ardmona KidsTown from Tuesday 21 September and can be on display for up to three months.


Tips & hints and entry forms are available from the KidsFest website
