The 41st Annual Harvest Fair at The Norman Bird Sanctuary (NBS) is adding a new challenge to their agenda of activities in 2015.

NBS has announced “THE DESIGNER SCARECROW CHALLENGE,” a contest to draw local organizations, merchants and vendors to sponsor a  team and create a “scarecrow” that represents your team’s creativity, originality and overall theme.

A sponsorship is only $100.00 to taxable entrants and $50.00 for non-profit organizations (501(c) (3) documentation required with application).

All scarecrow entries will be prominently displayed for all to see and to get your “name” in front of approximately 13,000 fair goers who pass through the gates during this great community event.  You can pick up your “scarecrow basics” at the Bird Sanctuary prior to the event.  All entries will be judged by the fairgoers so get creative!!!
