Scarecrow Competition

Throughout history, scarecrows have played a vital role in protecting crops and gardens from pesky birds. While modern methods have taken over, the charm and effectiveness of scarecrows remain. To honour our hardworking agricultural companions, we are excited to announce the Potato Festival Scarecrow competition at the Robertson Potato Festival 2024, sponsored by Bowral Co-op.

Families, schools, groups, and businesses are all encouraged to embrace the challenge and let their imagination run wild. Extra points will be awarded for incorporating potatoes into your scarecrow design! Get ready to create eye-catching entries that showcase your creativity and artistic skills.

Gather your friends, family, or colleagues, and let the Scarecrow Building competition at the Robertson Potato Festival be a memorable and enjoyable experience for all. 

Join the fun and showcase your creativity for a chance to win cash prizes. It’s absolutely free to enter with any General Admission ticket.

With a first prize of $500, a second prize of $150, and a viewer’s choice of $50, the stakes are high.
