The Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce is so excited that you have chosen to participate in our 3rd Annual SwampTown Scarecrows. Our hope is that this venture will not only be a great way to get our residents excited, but will also bring visitors to our wonderful community. We value your participation in this initiative that will promote our local businesses and organizations. SwampTown Scarecrows will be advertised through surrounding media.
Each entry will receive a sign to display in front of its scarecrow(s). The sign will include the name of the sponsor and an entry number.
For the People’s Choice Award, you also need to send a photo of your display (with your sign in place) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will create an album on our Facebook page for people to ‘Like’ their favorite. Out-of-town judges will be brought in to select the other award winners. The Chamber will announce the winners at PumpkinFest in Historic Downtown Waycross on October 22nd!
If your home, business, or organization is not located in Waycross, but you would like to display your scarecrow(s) in the downtown area, you will find your assigned location at the end of this letter. Spaces are limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Please be aware that the spaces will vary in size and you will need to be conscientious of the dimensions available. If you are not displaying your scarecrow(s) in downtown, the location you submitted to us on your application will be listed.
All displays should be in place by
the first week of October for official judging.
Again, thank you for helping make SwampTown Scarecrows a success! We hope that you will find the additional information helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact the Chamber of Commerce with any questions that you may have.Scarecrow Entry Form
