This year the CAC invited many local businesses and organizations to get into the Fall spirit by creating a scarecrow to represent their groups. Participants include Douglas County Chamber, Douglas County District Attorney’s Office, Douglas County High School, Douglas County Parks & Recreation, New Manchester High School – JagSTARS Afterschool Program, Nichols Center Inc., Partners in Education, Scaley Addictions, Stallings Insurance, and the Brookman Group. Each group created its unique scarecrow to compete for a cash prize sponsored by Keep Douglas County Beautiful.
Voting for the People’s Choice Award is simple! Voting takes place from Oct. 1st through 31st. First, take a visit to the Cultural Arts Center and explore the different scarecrows on the front lawn. Each scarecrow will have a sign with its name. Once you have found a favorite, stop inside to write out your vote. Drop your vote off at the CAC front desk in the metal tub!
Winners for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place will be announced during the Annual Chili Cook-Off on October 21st from 6-9 p.m. while celebrating the fall with chili, music, costumes, and more!
