Scarecrow contest is this month - UPDATED

The 3rd Annual Scarecrow Contest, presented by Downtown Steelville, is being held this month.

All businesses, organizations, churches, schools, and clubs are invited to compete for the bragging rights plaque. Decorate a scarecrow and display it in downtown Steelville by Wednesday, October 14. Your scarecrow can be scary, whimsical, or funny.

The rules for entering the contest are simple: Decorate and display your scarecrow by October 14. You do not need to be a Steelville Area Chamber of Commerce member or set it up in town to participate. Take a photo and submit it to the Steelville Star (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Friday, October 16.
