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 18th and October 18th, 2023.

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 - either free standing or attached to either trees or light poles.

Scarecrows that are larger or heavier than can be lifted by a single individual need to be arranged to be brought directly to a location downtown by their creator.  Location needs to be determined and arranged between Borer Family Chiropractic and creator prior to being brought downtown.

Creatively complicated scarecrows that are dropped off at Borer Family Chiropractic should be left with any necessary assembly/disassembly diagrams and instructions so that your amazing creation can be displayed in the way the creator has envisioned and so that Borer Family Chiropractic does not damage creator's creation in the transport process.

Display location of scarecrows will be determined by Borer Family Chiropractic and Saline Main Street.

Voting on scarecrows will begin on October 14th and run through October 25th, midnight, 2023. Voting is open to anyone. Only one vote per person per day. Voting may be done by this website.

Winners and final voting results will be announced on this website blog, our facebook page.

Scarecrows may be reclaimed by their creator(s) between October 30th and October 31st, 2023. All scarecrows not reclaimed by October 31st, 2023 will be removed and discarded.
