Scarecrow contest winners

For the best metaphoric scarecrow, the winner was École Desrochers’ junior and senior high students, who created a large crow chasing scarecrow farmers from Dole, Del Monte and Chiquita. Their display can be found near the cenotaph, behind the portables.

In the nature-based category, the winner was Ellen Merilovich, with a scarecrow made from garden scraps. Her crow can be found in her garden at 413 Geikie St.

And finally, the winner in the category of scary, was Stef Dolan, with a scarecrow donning a wizard cloak. You can find Dolan’s scarecrow outside her home at 1035 Bonhomme St.

Judging the crows was Coun. Rico Damota, Amber Stewart and Marianne Garrah. 

The other five entries, which all received a memorable mention, were made by École Desrochers’ kindergarten class, Jasper Elementary School’s Grade 1 class, Paula Klassen and her daughter Maya Charest, employees at Alpine Village and employees at Jasper Camera and Gift.

The winners were announced during the Bowls with Soul dinner and variety show Sunday night.

Funding for the straw and prizes for the contest came from Alberta Culture Days and the Creative Campus.
