Hoschton won the title “Scarecrow Capital of the World” back in 2008. Since then the Hoschton Fall Festival has always had some sort of small tie-in game, competition or pageant featuring scarecrows. This year the HHAC is pleased to sponsor multiple scarecrow competitions during Jump Right In Fest (Hoschton Fall Festival):
Jump Right In Scarecrow Competition – Full rules and registration form.
Contestants will create a scarecrow and have it judged against others. These can be made at home (check the rules) but must be brought to the HHAC center at 74 White Street Hoschton, GA on September 14th or 15th to be displayed. Awards will be announced September 28.
Jump Right In Scarecrow TEAM Competition – Full rules and registration for TEAMS.
Teams consisting of 3 – 5 members will plan a vignette presentation featuring scarecrows. They will bring their own materials (except stakes, twine and straw which will be provided). Each team will be given one hour and will construct their vignettes in front of Jump Right In Fest attendees and the judges. Check the full rules for details and prize amounts.
T-Shirt Design Contest for Teens – Full rules and registration for Teens T-Shirt Contest
Participants in this contest must be age 18 or younger. Entrants will design a scarecrow themed t-shirt using their own original artwork, or public domain clip art. They are allowed a maximum of four colors in the design. The entrant can specify whether they designed for a plain black t-shirt or a plain white t-shirt. The deadline for designs is August 23rd. Check the full rules and registration for addition details.
Coloring Contest for Kids
The HHAC will provide local schools with coloring sheets and offer free admission to Scarecrow House to selected winners. Coloring artwork will be on display at Scarecrow House. Any locally home-schooled students may also participate. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a coloring page.
