School Scarecrow Competition

Your school is invited to build a scarecrow for the 2019 Food and Fest. This is a great opportunity to get students and teachers alike working on a "whole school" project. Come together to build your school's scarecrow!

What do you need to know?

  • Entry is FREE for all schools

  • ONE entry per school

  • Scarecrows must be built from recyclable and/or recycled materials

  • The scarecrow will need to be built so as to be easily mounted onto and off from a star picket

  • A representative from your school will need to deliver your

  • scarecrow to Quarry Farm on the morning of the event between 6-9am

  • The winning scarecrow will be decided by the Fest goers

The scarecrow with the most votes on the day will win so make sure you come on down to vote for your school's scarecrow. There is a cash prize of $150 for the winning school. You can choose to donate your school's scarecrow after the competition, so that it can be auctioned to assist in fundraising for the SJ Food and Farm Alliance (the Not for Profit organisation hosting the FFF)

Be creative and have fun!
