Your traditional scarecrow is designed to discourage birds but this year scarecrows will encourage creativity with their designs!
The Callide Valley Show has launched a new competition for this year’s show, the Scarecrow Competition.
Individuals and groups are invited to create their own scarecrow from any materials and with any theme they like.
Knowing how many creative people we have across the Callide Valley, there are bound to be plenty of colourful and fun entries in this section.
For more details, contact the Show Secretary on 4992 2688 or check out the 2022 Show Schedule.
And while people are looking for inspiration, don’t forget about this year’s Wheelbarrow Competition at the Show. This was a big hit last year with some really pretty and eye-catching entries.
This competition is open to local schools, childcare centres and kindergartens. Students are encouraged to plant vegies, fruit or flowers in a wheelbarrow which will be incorporated with their school’s display section in the pavilion.
Prize money for the wheelbarrow competition is $50 for first place and $30 for second place (primary schools), and the same for kindies/childcare centres/early education.
Contact Trevor Stringer on 0488 618 747 for more information.
Entries are $5.50 and close on Monday, May 9. Pictured are some of the entries from last year’s wheelbarrow competition.
