All you have to do is decorate your best scarecrow(s) outside your place of business - bonus points for creativity! (rules apply)
The Chamber will promote the event to the Champaign County community across multiple platforms. The hunt is intended to be family-oriented activity that will encourage people to visit our local businesses; give families a break from the stress of COVID and encourage people to be outdoors before the weather changes.
Scarecrows will be displayed between Monday, October 19 and Monday, November 2.
Participation fee: $75 (per business/location)
Money raised from this event will go towards materials and other operating expenses associated with the iRead • iCount program. iRead • iCount is a community initiative designed to help reduce the achievement gap in our schools. It gives the students who need extra help with reading and math additional one-on-one instructional time with a caring volunteer.
In order to have time to promote the participating businesses and their scarecrows, the sign-up deadline is Friday, October 9. Have fun with it. Engage your staff and test their creativity. A prize will be awarded for the most ‘voted’ on scarecrow.
