Scarecrows are showcased on Zoo grounds from October 15 to early November. All participating classrooms will receive one complimentary children’s admission for each student to the Zoo to view their creations on display (valid through December 1, 2021 and cannot be combined with other offers.)
ONE Best in Show Winner will receive a virtual classroom visit from the Zoo and be featured on the Zoo’s website and Facebook page!
“It’s amazing how creative and elaborate these creations get,” said Gregg Dancho, zoo director. “Every year we’re amazed at the way the children embrace the fun of creating their scarecrow. It’s a traditional fall activity that never gets old!”
There is no cost to enter the competition, but the Zoo is seeking corporate sponsors for this fun filled event! A Classroom Sponsorship is $250, which will provide materials necessary for a classroom or local area program to design and enter a scarecrow. Additional sponsorship levels are available. All sponsors receive recognition on our website and e-newsletter, signage at your scarecrow, and two individual admission passes to the Zoo. To become a sponsor, contact Jessica Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available at https://www.beardsleyzoo.org/scarecrow-competition.html
