Scarecrow Contest

Enter Your Scarecrow to Win!

You've voted for your staff favorites in years past, but this year, Cornell Farm is excited to open up our annual scarecrow contest to our neighbors so that everyone can get in on the fall fun! The contest is open to anyone in our area who can deliver their scarecrow to the farm and pick up their prize package in the event that their scarecrow is chosen as one of our top three finalists.


$500, $250, and $100 Cornell Farm gift cards will be awarded to the creators of the top three scarecrows, who will be determined by an online vote in the first week of October. The winning scarecrows will be displayed onsite at Cornell Farm through Halloween.

How to Enter

  1. Dream up a cool scarecrow and bring it to life! Don't be afraid to get creative, but please keep submissions family-friendly.
  2. Take a picture of your finished piece in a well-lit location. All photo submissions should be captured in portrait orientation and sent in high resolution. (iPhone-quality pictures are great! Just be sure it uploads in "Original Quality," if possible)
  3. Send us an email at including a high-resolution photo of your scarecrow, your scarecrow's name, and your own name.

The final deadline to submit entries is noon on October 1, 2021. We can't wait to see what fun scarecrows you dream up!


Stay tuned for more information on voting, which will run October 2 - 7.
