“Scarecrow Contest” to take over Bollinger County

“Scarecrow Contest” to take over Bollinger County

It’s time to gather your straw and burlap. A countywide scarecrow contest is taking over Bollinger County, Mo. in autumn 2020.

The Bollinger County Chamber and Visitors Bureau is hosting the contest. It opens for submissions on October 16, 2020, and closes October 31, 2020.

Anyone living in Bollinger County can participate.

All you have to do is build a scarecrow somewhere in Bollinger County, snap a picture of the creation and send the picture to the Chamber.

Participants can email pictures to visitbocomo@gmail.com or text them to 573-208-5426.

The Chamber is encouraging people to submit their pictures in early so that they have more time to get votes.

The community is encouraged to pick their favorite in the album on Facebook.

Scarecrows can also be placed in Marble Hill Parks.

A winner will be announced on November 1.
