Put your creativity to the test and help us get in the spooky spirit. We’re calling on artists of all ages to create scarecrows for our Wicked Pumpkin Patch. Winged beasts and crawly creatures threaten to ruin our pumpkins! We need you to create something spooky (or friendly!) to ward off those pesky critters.
Hurry, supplies won’t last long! We only have room for 15 scarecrows in our patch and we need your help to protect our cherished pumpkins for all Spooktacular guests to enjoy. Scarecrows will be judged for artistry and creativity, with the top two being awarded special prizes from the Zoo.
Send your Name, Email, Phone Number, and a Brief Description of Scarecrow Design to email@example.com. A team member will follow up to confirm registration.
