MUNDUBBERA Community Development Association held a scarecrow competition again this year and expanded the competition to Eidsvold.
The aim of the competition is to encourage community members to engage in bringing some light-hearted fun into the communities and brighten the towns. 3
The competition attracted more than a dozen entries, reflecting interesting themes ranging from the quite gentle themes to the absolutely scary, sure to make any crow think twice before entering the vicinity.
The winning entry in Mundubbera this year is the creation by the Sams Family of Leichhardt St, followed into second place by by the Blue Care entry outside of the Respite Centre in Leichhardt, closely followed by a zombie figure at Balshaw’s Mitre 10 who continues to scare after dark.
The diversity of the themes reflect the creativity of the entrants and made judging difficult.
The Eidsvold Scarecrow completion was won by Hugh Reiser, with the creation at Golden Spur St, Eidsvold.
Due to the interest in the competition and the diversity of the entrants, the Association may expand the number of categories for next year’s competition.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the spirit of the competition. Community members are encouraged to begin planning their creation for next year’s event.
