Los Alamos Arts Council Announces Annual Scarecrow Contest On Central Avenue


Los Alamos Arts Council announces the Annual Scarecrow Contest sponsored by Los Alamos
MainStreet and Creative District. This year, LAAC requests that all Scarecrows fit within the theme of “Movie Monsters.” The display will be up for three weeks this year instead of one. Applications are available now, online at https://losalamosartscouncil.org/scarecrow-contest/ or inside the Fuller Lodge Art Center. Families, organizations, and businesses are all encouraged to submit entries!

Completed applications and an entry fee of $20 (cash or check made out to Los Alamos Arts Council) can be dropped off from Sept. 25 through Oct. 9 at the front desk of Fuller Lodge Art Center.

Participants may also bring their application with their Scarecrow to the Fuller Lodge Art Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 10 for Pole Assignment. Scarecrows may not be dropped off at the Los
Alamos Arts Council office, the MainStreet or Creative District Office, or the Fuller Lodge Art Center at any time. If participants cannot come for Pole Assignment at the designated time, please contact 505-662-1635 or laarts@rt66.com to make arrangements.

Community members are invited to start voting for “Fan Favorite” from Oct. 10 through Oct. 31 at Fuller Lodge Art Center or online. The online voting is not yet available. The winning entry in
“Fan Favorite,” as well as four others, will receive $70 in Chamber Checks — sponsored by Los Alamos MainStreet and the Creative District — and redeemable at dozens of local businesses. Official Judges from multiple local organizations will be looking at all Scarecrows and giving points for originality, creativity, and construction. The announcement of the winners will be online by 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31. Scarecrows will be on display from Oct. 10 to Nov. 1.
