Entries may be displayed on the common in the square, in front of a house or outside a business. Scarecrows in the square must have a tag with entrant's name and contact information.

Judging will take place during the week of Oct. 5. To be eligible for judging, entry forms must be submitted by Sunday, Oct. 4.
