Saline Scarecrow Contest Rules
PARTICIPANTS MUST PRE-REGISTER. Space is limited. Space will be provided on a first come first served basis. Registration may be done on this website or in person at Borer Family Chiropractic during regular business hours. Registration forms may be downloaded here.
Contest is open to individuals, businesses, organizations and clubs.
Scarecrows will be displayed in downtown Saline between October 1st and November 1st. Scarecrows should be delivered between September 26th and October 24th, 2017.
All scarecrows must be delivered to Borer Family Chiropractic at 210 W. Michigan Ave., Saline, MI 48176. Scarecrows must be identified with the name of the person entering the scarecrow (may be temporary - need not be permanently attached) onto the scarecrow itself - so the scarecrow can be properly identified with the correct registration information.
Business Owners who wish to display their entry in front of THEIR business may do so directly without bringing their entry to BFC. Please confirm your intention to do so in advance so we are able to anticipate this and accommodate the placement of other entries. Business Owners are still required to register for the contest with the contest registration form.
Scarecrows may be made of any materials the contestant chooses. Keep in mind scarecrows will be displayed outdoors, so should be designed with withstanding fall weather in mind.
All scarecrows must be designed so that they will stand upright and supplied with materials necessary to display them in an upright manner.
All scarecrows must be absent of adult or political themes. All scarecrows must be in good taste and appropriate for viewing by the public. Any scarecrow deemed inappropriate or in bad taste will not be displayed and not entered into the contest. Any scarecrow displayed downtown without prior pre-registration or deemed inappropriate will be taken down.
Scarecrows will be displayed in downtown Saline, MI - attached to either trees or light poles.
Display location of scarecrows will be determined by Borer Family Chiropractic and Saline Main Street.
Winners will be announced on October 26th, 2017 at the "Trunk or Treat" event downtown Saline.
Scarecrows may be reclaimed by their creator(s) between October 29th and November 1st, 2017. All scarecrows not reclaimed by November 1st, 2017 will be removed and discarded.
